    1. Professional Development:“Design on A Dime” November 2, 2013 10:45 – 11:35Session S155 Grand C/D Laurice Garrett, Sabine Eggleston, JoAnn LewinEdison State College Ft. Myers, Florida

    2. Our home institution: We are soon to be: Florida SouthWestern State College

    3. Edison State College • Served 24,034 students 2011-2012 • Serves five counties • Three campus locations and one regional center • Programs: 17 Associate and 10 Bachelors Degrees

    4. The West PointExperience

    5. Our Professional Development “Design on a Dime” involves four main focus areas: • A Community of Best Practices • Adjunct Training and Development • Peer Observations • An Online Repository for Ideas and a Place for Discussions

    6. Community of Best Practices

    7. What is a Community of Best Practices?

    8. Groups of educators who come together voluntarily at least once a month. Group members are committed to improving their practice through collaborative learning (National School Reform Faculty, 2010).

    9. A venue for “open sharing” and collegial conversations among professionals without fear of judgment or negative criticism (Spanneut, 2010).

    10. An opportunity to “have robust conversations about improving teaching and learning that … ultimately lead to improved student learning” (Yendol-Hoppey & Fictmen Dana, 2010, p. 118).

    11. What are the Intended Outcomes of a Community of Practice?

    12. Reduction in isolation of teachers. • Higher likelihood that teachers will be well informed, professionally renewed, and inspired to inspire students. • Commitment to making significant and lasting changes.

    13. Sandra waves “hello!” from our Hendry/Glades campus.

    14. Increased meaning and understanding of the content that teachers teach and the roles that play in helping all students achieve expectations. • (Some of the items are adapted from Hord, 1997)

    15. Logistical Issues • Advertising • How often do you meet? • How to disseminate the information from each session

    16. Round tablediscussions

    17. Agreements • Begin promptly. • Limit the time we meet to strictly one hour. • Only respectful behavior is allowed.How can we learn from each other if we go in with closed minds? If necessary, we must learn how to agreeably disagree.

    18. We primarily concentrate on topics in each of these three areas: • Pedagogy/Teaching Practices • Math Topics • Technology

    19. Pedagogy/Teaching Practices examples of topics covered

    20. Learning Styles of Students • Engaging students • Difficult/controversial topics • Attendance • Grading policies/Assessment • Group work

    21. Math Topics -examples of topics covered • Factoring • Rational Functions & Their Graphs • Logarithms

    22. College PrepFaculty Compares Notes on Mixture Problems

    23. Technology – examples of topics covered • Use of classroom equipment, such as doc cams, SMART products, clickers • Effective use of calculators • How to post notes • How to use online resources

    24. Sign In Sheet Used to Register Participants

    25. Example of a certificate issued for Professional Development

    26. How do we assess our effectiveness in Community of Practice?

    27. The Best Things about OurCommunity of Best Practices • Collegiality • Safe place to discuss areas of concern • Sharing • Professional Development

    28. Issues and Concerns: • Involvement of adjuncts • Keeping it “fresh” • Logistics

    30. Why create an Adjunct Training? • Smoother beginning of the semester • Lends consistency of instruction between full time instructors & adjuncts • Allows for greater collegiality

    31. When do you hold an adjunct training? • Before the beginning of the semester-- Approximately 2 hours for each module, on a Saturday • During the semester around midterm-- An evening for about 1 hour

    32. The Modules for the Training • Course Specific • Syllabi • Calculators • Expectations • Final Exam

    33. The Modules for the Training • Classroom Technology • SMART board/ Smart Notebook • SmartView (calculator)

    34. The Modules for the Training • Classroom Technology • Sympodium • Document Camera

    35. The Modules for the Training • Technology & Homework Delivery System • Features of the homework delivery system • Calculator features

    36. The Modules for the Training • Course Administration • Attendance verification • Record keeping • Management system tools
