2.5.1.3 Professional Development

One of the primary duties of a Juniata College faculty member is professional development, “the growth in competence as a teacher which follows from a continuing and lively pursuit of scholarly interests” (§ 2.9.5). Normally, evidence of professional development is provided by scholarly or creative activity that is recognized by professional colleagues outside the institution. Professional development enhances and acknowledges the expertise of the faculty member, enriches the classroom, and increases the visibility of Juniata College. Faculty members should involve Juniata students in their professional activities, either directly (by engaging with students in scholarship) or indirectly (by providing students opportunities to witness the practice of scholarly endeavors), and should act as professional role models for their students. Professional development includes, but is not limited to, the following activities:

A. Individual or collaborative research, writing, or artistic production as recognized by experts in the particular field;

B. Participation in professional meetings, especially by presenting peer-reviewed papers or
posters, presenting workshops, or serving as a panel member or discussant;

an expert in the field;

D. Published reviews of the work of other scholars in the field;

E. Invited testimony before government bodies as an expert in the field;

F. Grant applications and funding for research from outside sources;

G. Research on the scholarship of teaching and learning;

H. Mastery of a field significantly outside the candidate’s previous training and experience
(see § 2.5.1.1) to prepare and teach courses in support of departmental or college-wide
priorities;

I. Activities in support of the activities listed in A-H above (e.g., learning a new language or
other research tool, attending a workshop or conference in support of a new line of
scholarly inquiry).
