Process Outline for Faculty:
To facilitate the process, the SBCTC maintains an online interactive database. The system is designed to be extremely flexible: each instructor is guided through the same set of steps, but you create your own unique professional development plan tailored to the needs of your position and your current skill levels.
Complete your Skills Survey/Self-Assessment;
Select your five Professional Development Activities
(Due by the end of the 1st month of your 3- or 5-year certification -- (3 years for new faculty, 5 years thereafter)
Create your Professional Development Plan from your Selected Activities
(3-year plan for new faculty, 5-year plan thereafter)
(Due by the end of the 2nd month of your certification)
Complete your Plan Activities by the due dates you assigned;
As the due date for each of your activities approaches, document its completion for your Dean's approval.
(Due by the dates you specify in the previous step.)
Repeat the process for your next 5-year Plan
(Due by the last month of your 3- or 5-year certification)
