Counseling Faculty Development Program.
Santa Rita, Emilio
Designed for use as a development activity for counselors at Bronx Community College in New York, this program provides discussion materials, questionnaires, and worksheets from the college's Counseling Faculty Development Program. A brief introduction indicates that the program encompasses three components, empowering counselors in the teaching role, formative evaluation and supervision, and inservice training. The remainder of the document consists of three sections corresponding to the three program components. Part I focuses on empowering counselors and describes four stages of a self-directed learning model, providing a framework that facilitates a gradual shift in beginning teaching counselors (BTCs) from learners dependent upon an authority to self-directed and independent learners. This section includes questionnaires for evaluating the learning model and the effect of development on counselors and contains nine references. Part II describes formative evaluation through supervision, indicating that BTC's participate in a pre-observation conference with supervisors, are observed, and then participate in a post-observation conference. This section includes questionnaires for evaluating pre- and post-observation conferences and teacher supervisors, and a rating guide for evaluating counselor performance. Contains 18 references. Finally, part III describes the components of inservice training, including presentation of theory, modeling techniques, practice under simulated and classroom conditions, providing feedback, and coaching for application. This section includes a syllabus for inservice training; evaluation forms for the teaching learning module, courses, and the inservice workshops; and a class teaching method questionnaire. Contains 12 references. (KP)
