About Professional Development @ CR

In support of the college’s mission and Objective 1.6 of the College of the Redwoods Strategic Plan (Support staff and faculty development and instructional innovation), the Professional Development Committee provides a comprehensive professional development program to include assessment of needs, planning and evaluation of activities. 

The committee meets monthly to coordinate planning, scheduling, and assessment of professional development activities and to ensure that proposed activities are linked to the college mission and goals.  The committee is chaired by the Director & Chief Human Resources Officer and is comprised of representatives from each of the campus constituent groups.

Professional Development @ CR

The Professional Development Committee has strived to offer trainings staff have indicated interest in as well as what are linked to the mission and goals of the District.  Below are links that will take you to documents listing trainings provided to staff since the fall of 2015.

Fall 2017 Trainings

Each constituent group was surveyed in 2016 to find out the types of trainings they would most like to see offered in the coming year.  Through those surveys the Professional Development Committee was able to make decisions on what to provide for staff.

During the first Professional Development Committee meeting in September of 2017, the group decided on what trainings to offer, based on the survey results.  The training list will be published here soon, and in the mean time various trainings have already been added to the Professional Development calendar for the fall semester.

A new piece of information that came out of the September Professional Development Meeting, the committee is going to meet quarterly now instead of monthly.  The next meeting date will be posted on the committee calendar and the meeting notes will be posted on the committee site very soon.

We look forward to very productive year and we encourage everyone to use the links on the left-hand side of this web site and propose ideas for trainings.  We'd love to hear any ideas you have!
