The Faculty Development Program for continuing education programs at Rancho Santiago Community College District is a diverse series of activities to help advance your skills in instruction to better meet the needs of your students. We hope that all faculty adopt a philosophy of ongoing growth and development to further enhance their performance in the classroom. Besides traditional workshops that we offer extensively during "flex" weeks in both spring and fall, we offer specialized certificates, reflection tools, online courses and workshops, and other possible activities.
A flex booklet is developed every semester to provide direction in completing the flex agreement for most faculty following the established policies.
Our next big project is the development of a Professional Learning Community. We started this in 2013. It currently involves 30 teachers whom we pay to meet regularly and to do other classroom research. PLC meetings are open to anyone and everyone.
Don't forget Fall Flex is due by December 1 and Spring Flex by May 1!
