Duration: 20 minutes
As the rapid rate of Technology and Distance Programs (TDP) at College of Education at University of Hawaii at Manoa (COE UHM) is expanding, TDP is striving to help faculty and staff at COE UHM build up their professional development (PD). This paper discusses a needs assessment conducted at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) to understand faculty and staff’s actual needs and preferences. Conducting useful and effective workshops and better serving the faculty and staff at COE UHM has become a very important issue for TDP, however scheduling conflicts and topic selection have caused inefficiencies in the workshop program. In response to these challenges TDP at COE UHM has been offering professional development sessions and conducting evaluations following each workshop. The purpose of this needs assessment (NA) is to assess the professional development needs and preferences of faculty in the College of Education at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
