Professional Development Center (PDC)

Welcome to the Professional Development Center (PDC)! MVC's PDC represents a comprehensive initiative to move from an institutional paradigm to a learning paradigm. Through various professional development opportunities: staff, faculty, and administration are exposed to strategies that facilitate the improvement of the quality of our students' educational experiences and strengthen their linkages to support mechanisms on our college campus. The PDC supports researching results of courses, academic and student services programs, college policies and procedures; and improving Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Service Area Outcomes (SAOs). Professional development activities include and facilitate systemic improvements such as:

  • Succession management planning (developing staff as a long term investment)
  • Intentional team-building between faculty and student services staff as partners mutually vested in the academic success of students
  • Professional development process that is purposefully linked to curricular and support innovations intended to raise achievement for all students
  • The use of action research to inform the curriculum development; program review; assessment; strategic planning processes
  • On-going support of reflection and dialogue among faculty and staff members to decrease professional isolation and create their own learning community for teaching, services, and resources
  • Grant and Resource Development.
