Parmenter, Bill; And Others
The human resources development plan presented in this report was developed by Cypress College (CC) to increase or refresh the knowledge and skills of classified staff, faculty, and administrators. The report reviews the colleges staff development plan, activities for 1988-89, and plans for 1989-90. Section I provides an overview of CC's staff development program, including information on the role of the college's Staff Development Steering Committee, program coordination and administration, and staff development needs, goals, and objectives. The three main goals identified in this section are to make staff development a shared effort involving the total staff, to make staff development a staff-driven process, and to offer an eclectic approach in staff development. Section II details the programs and activities developed by the CC Staff Development Steering Committee for the 1988-89 academic year including a building community colloquium, a mandatory flex day, flex activities for adjunct faculty, a needs assessment survey, the development of a form for proposals, a variety of group programs, and funding of workshop and conference participation. The report indicates that CC's staff was most interested in programs to promote professional growth and instructional effectiveness, and to provide retraining. Preferences were expressed for the coverage of conference/workshop expenses, campus inservice programs, innovation grants, and education cost assistance. Section III outlines the program plan for 1989-90, including budget information and information on program evaluation. Appendixes provide a job description for a staff development coordinator, the needs assessment survey instrument, sample requests and applications for staff development proposals, and the staff development evaluation instrument.
