A Model for the Staff Development of Community College Part-Time Faculty.
Pedras, Melvin J.
A staff development model for community college part-time faculty is presented as developed at Clark County Community College (CCCC). Introductory material discusses staff development in the community colleges, the paucity of materials on the development of part-time faculty, and the creation of the model staff development plan at Clark. Next, the model is presented, including information on: (1) the administration of the staff development training program; (2) the determination of the training needs of part-time faculty in the areas of instructional development and delivery, legal aspects of education, community college missions, and classroom and laboratory management of education; (3) the development and organization of curriculum components, including specific potential curriculum items; (4) the identification of populations to be served; (5) the logistics of the training program, e.g., the development of short-term workshops during school breaks or on weekends; (6) program funding; and (7) the development of support services, including an advisory committee to plan workshops and liaison with related committees, and the creation of a part-time faculty handbook.
