Faculty Resource Handbook.
Palek, Mark; And Others
In October 1990, South Seattle Community College (SSCC), in Washington State, received Title III funds to establish a Faculty Development Team (FDT) which provided faculty with training, equipment, and other resources on outcomes assessment, the use of emerging technologies, multicultural education, and teaching and learning styles. This compilation provides an overview of the wide variety of activities which were sponsored by the FDT during the 1990-91 academic year, including workshops, seminars, and group and individual grant projects. Following a brief introduction, section 1 contains a year-end report by Mark Palek which reviews workshops, training, teleconferences, and mentoring institutions conducted, outside experts consulted, and faculty resources developed. In section 2, handouts from two workshops are provided: "Seminar in Teaching Techniques To Use for the Limited English Proficiency Student" and "Strategies for Meeting the Needs of a Diversity of Students in the Classroom." Section 3 contains a bibliogrphy and a list of policies and resources on outcomes assessment prepared by members of the FDT. In section 4, brief reports from the recipients of 20 faculty development grants providing descriptions and evaluations of activities undertaken are presented. Finally, section 5 contains "Evaluation Report: Year One, South Seattle Community College Faculty Development Program," by John P. Smith, an external evaluator. A survey instrument used to solicit faculty attitudes about the program is appended to the evaluation report. (MAB)
