Faculty Involvement in Professional Development: Everyone's Responsibility and Benefit.
Hoover, Betty-Bruce H.
At Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa, Florida, faculty evaluation has been redefined as "review for professional development," and faculty professional development has evolved into a program involving many people, with a philosophy of its own--"everyone's responsibility and benefit." It is an ongoing process throughout the year, and its goal is to recognize potential problems and to eliminate them before full-blown problems surface. The process is involved and comprehensive; however, it serves positively to accomplish its goal of reaching and maintaining faculty potential through faculty involvement in professional development. It involves a number of colleagues at different levels of responsibility (Division Director, Department Chairpersons, peer evaluators/reviewers) with the Headmaster as recipient of the information compiled. This paper presents a detailed schedule of the faculty evaluation/review process, and provides copies of the teacher self-evaluation and department chairmen evaluation form, the teacher peer evaluation form, classroom observation form, faculty evaluation by students form, and other forms.
