David McGee made the motion to approve the minutes from the last meeting. Gary Randolph seconded and the motion was approved.
Charles Poff, Chair, gave a brief update on the status of the professional development task force. The task force does not have a formal report at this time as they are still gathering data. The task force should have something to report by mid-November.
Charles led a discussion on a template for the professional development webpage. David assisted with the review of the cpcc.edu/pd website for ideas.
The committee drafted a mission statement/theory of professional development:
“The Central Virginia Community College professional development program
fosters continuous learning and improvement for all faculty and staff in order to
promote the success of our students, our college, and our community.”
The group started a discussion for judging applications for professional development funds. Additional discussion will take place at the next meeting.
