Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1972 
6 p. 

A workshop for community college deans of instruction focused on evaluating faculty in California community colleges. Eight major concerns of faculty regarding their evaluation were discussed with emphasis on the positive aspects of evaluation. The use of simulations provided workshop participants with the opportunity to assume roles of deans of instruction, colleagues, department chairmen, and candidates for faculty positions. Golden West College's (California) Assessment of Student Learning (ASL) system was presented as one model for faculty evaluation. The ASL system, which stresses faculty use of specific or behavioral objectives in course planning, was discussed in terms of its advantages to faculty members and the college. Conclusions of the workshop include: (1) an evaluation scheme should be based on definite performance criteria; (2) deans themselves should become aware of the use of objectives and faculty self-evaluation; (3) the problem of evaluating faculty who do not use objectives was not resolved by the participating deans; (4) the use of simulation appeared a successful way of bringing out problems and underlying concerns; and (5) the participants felt that the workshop was beneficial and should be followed-up with additional meetings.
