PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
  • Instructors are the core for personal and professional development.
  • No matter what the system is, the most important element is the instructor.
  • For constant personal and professional development, the staff should be committed.
slide11

First of all, the institutional needs for personal and professional development should be determined.

  • Also,teachers’ needs as the core element need to be found out.
  • The critical question is “Are we ready to change as instructors?”
academic management and institutional development
ACADEMIC MANAGEMENT AND INSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT
  • We should see the whole picture in school ethos: Thinking, learning and caring
  • We should redefine our terms:

What is management?

  • We cannot manage people, we can provide an effective environment to work.
  • The idea of management is not for one person, but it is a teamwork.
slide13

There is need for avoiding levels of hierarchy, but putting emphasis on work and project.

  • A label and title-free mindset should be formed.
  • We have positive ethos and we should benefit from it.
  • We need to create a positive atmosphere/support for people’s cooperation & collaboration
slide14

We should have a healthy mindset.

  • While defining or describing all teaching and learning situations, we need to use correct words and a sensitive language.
  • It is us who have to change since our students will not change.
slide15

There should be a shared vision and shared goals among staff.

  • We need a strategic plan which should be parallel to our university’s strategic plan with areas prioritized.
