The Professional Development (FLEX) Committee meets on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 1:00 PM.
The Committee works in cooperation with the Staff Development Committee in implementing the college professional development program under the collective bargaining agreement. The Committee plans Professional Development Days, and intersession programs, evaluates and approves agreements, individual projects, and contract completion forms, approves presenter proposals, and recommends speakers for special programs with the approval of the Senate. [Academic Senate Constitution and By-Laws, Article XIV, Section 10.]
The mission of the Professional Development program is to create and promote opportunities for faculty, staff, and administrators to engage in continuous learning, professional growth, and personal enhancement leading to student success. The district commits the necessary resources to support professional development efforts on all the campuses.
Professional development activities at LAHC are approved by the Professional Development/FLEX Coordinator in conjunction with the Professional Development committee. The committee is under the direction of Academic Senate, Education code, Title 5, and guidelines developed by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.
Message from the Chair:
Welcome to your Professional Development/Flex website! It is hoped that this website will help you access all the information that you need to understand your contractual obligation as well as accessing the necessary forms to fulfill that obligation.
The purpose of Professional Development is to provide opportunities for instructional improvement for faculty to enhance student learning and student success. The intent is to enhance the overall effectiveness of the institution by providing professional development opportunities that promote innovation, inspire continued professional growth, and improve the learning and working environment at Los Angeles Harbor College.
The Professional Development/Flex Committee will be providing monthly updates on activities and workshops that have been approved for Flex credit. Please refer to the Guidelines to understand the types of activities that are acceptable. Also, any faculty member can present a workshop and receive 3 hours per hour of presentation.
If you wish to complete an Individual Project, the form must be submitted to the Committee prior to your completion of project.
We will continue to issue out completion reports via campus mail. Should you have any questions or suggestions about how we can better serve you, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing all of you a successful academic year,
