Summary

Developed by the Los Angeles Community College District's (LACCD's) Commission for the Advancement of Teaching, this report identifies broad areas related to teaching excellence in the LACCD, assesses them for possible problems or deficiencies, and makes recommendations for solutions where problems exist. Section I introduces the Commission, its charge, and its methods of investigation and operation. Section II focuses on professional growth and staff development programs in general, and the professional development opportunities available in the LACCD. Section III looks at career development patterns among college faculty, considering issues such as attitude changes, burnout, the short academic career ladder, merit pay, and the master teacher concept. Section IV considers the importance of social communication and a sense of community to teaching excellence, while section V examines the role of teacher support services. Section VI addresses the impact of advanced computer and telecommunication technologies on the LACCD, covering technological influences on administration, curriculum, classroom instruction, and teacher support services; and exploring the problems of technology. Section VII discusses the relationship of mission and leadership to teaching. Each of these sections concludes with a series of related recommendations. Section VIII offers conclusions and the report ends with a summary of recommendations. (AYC)
