Professional Development Newsletter and District Flex Day Debrief (Th, 1/24/19)

24 January 2019

Hello Peralta,

I hope the start of your spring term is going well!  If you haven’t already done so, please fill out this Spring 2019 Flex Day Evaluation for the District’s Professional Development day on Thursday, 1/17/19.

(workshops: Classified Leadership, Community Events, and Reading Apprenticeship)

Thank you to all those who attended and participated in the District Flex on Thursday or your college flex days on Friday. According to the morning sign-ins at the Laney Theater, we had nearly 200 people in the Theater with half from Laney and the rest divided between the three other colleges and the district offices. Almost 100 of the attendees were full-time faculty with part-time faculty, classified professionals, and administrators, and by lunchtime, a number of others arrived just in time for our late morning workshops or lunchtime discipline and area meetings.

Here are a few links if you’d like to dive-in:

If you have any additional materials from these workshops or presentations, please send them to me to post on our website!

Column Advancement
  • Finished with Course?: If you have completed courses that you would like to apply toward column advancement, you MUST turn in those transcripts to HR by the end of the 4th week of instruction in order to have those changes included in this term’s pay checks. Please do it sooner if possible.
  • Undergraduate Courses: If you are taking undergraduate classes and you would like to apply those to column advancement (no more than 20 units), you must submit this form (download: Column Advancement Request) to staffdevelopmentofficer@peralta.edu. It will take up to 1-month for a response.
Planning for Future PD
  • Don’t forget that you can apply for professional development funding through your college committees, propose workshops or activities for the mid-semester flex days (Th., 3/21/19), and work with your departments through program review to make plans for future professional development. AND, if you’d like to propose an online Staff Development Office Hour discussion, don’t hesitate to contact me at staffdevelopmentofficer@peralta.edu.

Have a great spring term!
