Individual Activities Draft

Submit the Completed Individual Activity Form after you have finished your activity.

Faculty may seek pre-approval for any individual activity by submitting the Individual Activity Proposal.  Once the activity is approved, then the Completed Individual Activity form must be submitted to receive professional development credit.

Process and Criteria

  • The activity must meet the state guidelines (improves teaching, maintains current academic and technical knowledge and skills, etc.).
  • The hours requested are reasonable.
  • Completion of the activity can be documented (e.g. receipt, program, agenda) and/or the teacher can clearly explain how the activity is relevant to his or her professional development in a brief summary submitted with the completed activity form.
  • Activities like museum visits, site visits, cultural arts activities, and Exercise Science classes are limited to 5 flex hours per semester. More hours may be approved by the committee when the activity is particularly relevant to the discipline (pre-approval strongly recommended).
  • The activity is not part of normal job responsibilities and is not already compensated, including regular instructional and office hours, regular department meetings held at any time during the semester other than Professional Development Week, standing committee meetings (including screening committee meetings), classroom preparation time (syllabus preparation, ongoing web page development, preparation of instructional materials, gathering resources, etc.), Chair/Coordinator responsibilities, including those that occur during Professional Development Week (reassignment as a Chair/Coordinator is part of a full-time faculty load), activities occurring during paid work hours, and activities used for salary advancement.

This Process and Criteria statement was approved by the Academic Senate February 2011.
