measures the activities conducted by the participant after the training that
can be attributed to the development program

influence of the program on the participant’s career

Methodology

Pre-Test, Post-Test, Delayed Post-Test

Session
instructors will be asked to administer a brief pre-test and post-test
immediately before and after the session is conducted. The pre-test instrument
will prompt participants to self-assess their existing knowledge of the topic,
perceived utility (walk-away value) of the content in their daily teaching
activities, perceived long-term benefits of workshop content, and their
personal objective(s) for taking the session. The post-test instrument will
prompt participants to rate their satisfaction with the workshop based on what
content was presented, the immediate value of the content in their teaching,
the long-term value of the content to their teaching, how the content fit with
their personal objectives, and any perceived gain in teaching efficacy.

A
delayed post-test will be sent out at the end of each semester to gather the
same data as the immediate post-test for comparison purposes.

2.
End of Session Evaluation Forms

The
current form used to evaluate the session and instructor will continue to be
employed at the end of each session.

3.
Professional Development Advisory Committee

advisory committee will be formed with faculty and/or department chair
representation from each department to guide future Faculty Development
Strategic Plan and will  evaluate the
current and future goals of the faculty development programs, and making
recommendations for future directions

4.
