A districtwide Employee Development Day Oct. 30 is a chance for professional development within departments.
“It’s a day where faculty can sit back and do some self-examination of their strengths and weaknesses and learn from each other,” Dr. Paul Wilson, director of the Murguia Learning Institute and coordinator for this college’s EDD, said.
Wilson said the fall event focuses on faculty development and the spring on staff development.
Faculty will start with an 8 a.m. breakfast in the lobby of McAllister Fine Arts Center and a 9 a.m. general session conducted by President Robert Zeigler in the auditorium. After, faculty members are to follow the agenda set by each department.
Classes before 5 p.m. are canceled, but classes that begin after 5 p.m. will meet as scheduled.
Wilson said the EDD does not take away from the instructional days students are required to have.
“The district works it into the academic year knowing that this will be a day where we won’t have student contact and it’s devoted to professional development,” he said.
