Professional Development Handbook

Professional Development Obligation:

How do I calculate my annual FLEX obligation?
  • Full-Time Faculty must complete and report 33.5 hours.
  • Full-Time Faculty with additional hourly loads must complete and report 33.5 hours plus one half of their total annual hourly assignment.
  • Faculty with release time assignments must complete and report on a pro-rata basis. For example, a 60% teaching assignment must complete 60% of 33.5 hours.
  • Adjunct Faculty must complete and report one half of their total annual hourly assignment (year equals half the sum of the standard hours value of the fall assignment and the standard hours value of the spring ssignment.)
  • Non-traditional Instruction such as PACE, TBA, DL, and noncredit, must complete and report one half of their total annual hourly assignment (year equals half the sum of the standard hours value of the fall assignment and the standard hours value of the spring assignment.)
  • Non-classroom faculty working on the compressed calendar shall complete and report their required hours by either working or participating in professional development activities
  • Faculty teaching online courses should dedicate one-half of their total online teaching load towards professional development that is related to online instruction.  Online instruction professional development activities may include online pedagogy, online best practices, online accessibility, learning management system training, and external tools (ZOOM, NetTutor, etc)
