Evaluation of Faculty Competencies in the Delivery of Contracted Workforce Training with Recommendations for Faculty Development at Fox Valley Technical College.
May, Susan A.
This document describes an evaluation of the competencies of faculty who deliver contracted workforce training at Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC). A self-assessment questionnaire was administered to FVTC's 150 full-time and adjunct faculty who conduct workforce training; in addition, 157 employers who were clients of the college in the provision of contracted workforce training completed an evaluation survey. By comparing the means of each respondent group with the ideal means established for each competency item by a formative committee, performance gaps were recognized, the largest of which was organizational culture assessment skill. The document also discusses: (1) the need for employer-contracted workforce training; (2) the extent to which community colleges must prepare to respond to training needs; (3) industry standards for instructors/trainers of incumbent workers in business and industry; (4) FVTC faculty self-assessment ratings of the contracted workforce training they deliver; (5) assessment of FVTC training programs by employer clients; (6) gaps between ideal competency levels, faculty self-assessment, and employer/client assessment; and (7) recommendations for the professional development of FVTC faculty to address any performance gaps and training needs identified in this evaluation. Appended are a listing of the formative committee, instructor/trainer competencies, the faculty self-assessment instrument, the employer/client evaluation instrument, criteria for questionnaire evaluation, and various letters and recommendations.
