Notes from the Session

Information Capture Form Results from the Session

Professional development is at the heart of many of the challenges facing our teaching faculty, instructional technology staff and directors of teaching and learning centers.

Here we want to focus on:

Ways in which we can work together on services and issues associated with professional development for teaching faculty in the area of TLT, identify best practices and resources, and specifically where we might most profitably explore common assessment tools and professional development support services and solutions. Also explore ideas for system-wide support of professional development for faculty.

Ways in which we can identify common professional development issues and solutions for professionals working in the area of instructional technology (continuous training, conferences, communities, etc).

Wednesday, May 31 1- 2:15pm: Professional Development for Teaching Faculty

Professional Development Summary

    Assess the technology-related skills and professional development needs of our teaching faculty to accomplish common tasks associated with course design and development, presentations, and effective teaching and learning and assessment..

    What ARE those technology-related skills that all teaching faculty need, and how do we keep a definition of skills current? (examples: course content and development, presentations, video classrooms, pedagogy, learning assessment)

    Where do faculty have expectations for training that need to be questioned given the rapidly changing technology environment (for example are HTML, scripting, programming skills training appropriate for "mainstream" faculty?)

    How might we identify and share best practices, conferences, tools, and services in this area?

    Are there opportunities for cooperative efforts to deliver services (training content, workshop design, classes and workshops, service providers, help desks)

    Scheduled workshops versus just-in-time support - what works?

    What is the emerging value of on-line tutorials (CBT, etc), or outsourced training?

Wednesday, May 31, 2:30-3:45pm: Professional development issues and solutions for professionals working in the area of Instructional Technology

Professional Development for Informational Systems Technologists [IST] and Instructional Technology Consultants [ITC] Professionals

    Assess the technology-related skills and professional development needs of our professional staff and Teaching and Learning directors?

    How might we identify and share best practices, conferences, tools, and services in this area?

    Are there opportunities for cooperative efforts to recommend standards of support for these professionals?

    In what ways can the TLT Collaborative most effectively provide support for professional Instructional Technology staff and Teaching and Learning Centers and directors?
