A Framework for Student Success and Continuous Professional Development
The Professor of the 21st Century is a document that communicates the College's expectations of faculty in their role as teachers and provides a framework for continuous professional development.
The Professor of the 21st Century outcomes and competencies were developed through detailed discussions among academic leaders from across the College with the final document receiving approval by the College Academic Council, the Academic Services Management Committee and the President's Executive Committee.
The Professor of the 21st Century was leveled in 2004 to illustrate three stages of continuous professional development. New faculty recruitment will concentrate on Stage One activities. Faculty reaching the end of their probationary status will be expected to demonstrate Stage Two activities while Stage Three represents activities of established teachers.
As such, all faculty will be able to use this framework as a means to plan professional development activities.
