Faculty Professional Development Obligations
Deadlines to Complete Professional Development Obligation for the 2023-2024 Academic Year:
|Full Time Faculty
- Faculty are required to complete Professional Development (PD) hours by attending face-to-face or online activities within the Vision Resource Center, or completing Self-Designed External Training. These are paid hours, and must be included on your Vision Resource Center transcript by the above deadlines or your pay will be reduced accordingly.
"Adjunct faculty must submit all documents which demonstrate evidence of completion of their professional development activities no later than the last day of the twelfth (12) week of instruction each semester. Tenured/Tenure-Track faculty must submit all documents which demonstrate evidence of completion of their professional development activities no later than the last day of the twelfth (12) week of instruction the spring semester each year."
- Your Professional Development Obligation is calculated by semester in the Vision Resource Center. The calculation takes into account full-time faculty release time and extra pay assignments along with the contractual 20 hours per year. The part-time faculty calculation is by instructional hour and is described in the box below. Both follow the faculty contract.
|Adjunct Faculty & Extra Pay
|Full Time Faculty
|Usually 1 hour for each assigned instructional hour (1 lecture unit = 1 hour; 1 lab unit = 3 hours).
|20 hours per year plus extra pay
|Fall: July 1 to the 12th week of class
Spring: week 13 of fall to week 12 of spring semester, or roll over extra hour from fall
Disclaimer: If a part-time faculty member chooses to engage in professional development activities earlier than flex week, and if her/his teaching load is subsequently reduced, she/he is not entitled to be compensated for the extra hours.
|July 1 and week 12 of spring semester.
