Exemplary Practices in Staff and Program Development.
Giroux, Roy F., Ed.; Mezei, Katherine E., Ed.
In June 1988, the heads of Staff Development of each institution of the Ontario Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology were invited to submit brief descriptions of 5 to 10 outstanding programs or practices designed to develop human resources within the college. This directory of exemplary practice provides a selection of the colleges' submissions. After a brief introduction that emphasizes the importance of both sharing and celebrating effective and innovative practices in a time of dwindling resources, descriptions, and a contact person, are presented for the following: (1) exemplary programs and practices for student retention, including retention strategies, and activities fostering student success and articulation; (2) exemplary practices in faculty and staff development, including programs for part-time teacher's, mentoring, employee recognition, employment equity, sabbaticals and retirement, curriculum development, and support staff; (3) exemplary practices that serve non-traditional clientele, including special needs, native, Francophone, and international students; (4) exemplary practices in management and organizational development, including training for academic leaders, strategic planning, and research and development, and fundraising for human resource development; (5) exemplary partnerships with business, industry, and community, including service contracts and externships; and (6) exemplary practices in computer applications, including computers uses in staff development, program-specific uses, partnerships with industry, and innovations in instructional delivery. A list of submissions by chapter is included. (MAB)
