PART II: Presentation

In your EDTE 234 groups, present the following at the face-to-face on April 11-12, 2008;

1 A handout - each group will distribute a copy of the complete Staff Development plan, one copy to each member of the SDC (Staff Development Committee - see description below), and one copy to each instructor.
2 A  5 minute presentation of the overall staff development plan to the SDC and
3 A  25 minute illustrative example of your actual training so that the committee can experience your training first hand.

PART III: Evaluation

Description of the Staff Development Committee (SDC):
The SDC shall be comprised of all students and faculty who are not members of the presenting group. Historically, the SDC has been the governing body approving staff development implementation and in-service training at Absorbine Junior Academy for Reluctant Learners. Recently, the SDC has been told repeatedly that teachers are tired of poor training workshops that are "boring, long, and mostly, if not completely, useless." The SDC is tired of hearing such comments and therefore has adopted a new method by which to approve potential staff development training. Be it thereby resolved henceforth that; all staff development trainers are required to present an overall staff development plan, as well as deliver a 25 minute portion of said training, before receiving approval to actually conduct the training on site.

All SDC committee members must:
a. Take notes during the presentation,
b. Meet in their 234 groups to evaluate the staff development plan according to the criteria provided by the presenting group
using both the 'Lesson Plan' Rubric ' and the 'Presentation Rubric', and
c. As a group, write-up an evaluation of the observed 'staff development lesson and presentation'.
Send a copy of the evaluation document to the instructor in a digital format.
Indicate approval recommendation with or without modification(s) along with supporting rationale for suggested modifications, if any.

Students will need an e-mail account and computer access to the Web. All Sacramento State students enrolled in one or more units can create a SacLink account for e-mail. Although a home computer with Internet access running Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Netscape Navigator would be beneficial, students can access the Internet from one of the campus student labs. Check out System Check and Computer Hardware Recommendations for more information about equipment.
