Honolulu Community College - University of Hawaii
Volume 5 No. 1		October 15, 1995


	Welcome all!  This marks the fifth year that our Faculty 
Development (FD) Committee has published a Newsletter here at Honolulu 
Community College.  This year's format will remain the same as past years 
with informative articles, news, and the Faculty Spotlight section.  The 
Newsletter will be published four times this year and will be accessible 
through HCC's HomePage on the World Wide Web.  Notices will be posted in 
the Weekly Bulletin and around campus whenever a new issue is published.  
A hardcopy of the Newsletter will be posted in the mailroom and the 
Faculty Resource Corner of the Library for your reading.  If you wish to 
receive a hardcopy of the Newsletter, please let me know, and I will see 
that you receive one as soon as they are published.
	As we reach this point in the semester, the FD Committee hopes 
that all of you are having a productive, exciting, and enjoyable year.  
Once again we welcome and appreciate ideas and comments that will assist 
the committee in offering a comprehensive and systematic approach to 
faculty development.  Please send your ideas to me or any member of the 
committee.  Our members for 1995-1996 include;

	Grace Ihara, Lecturer, Division I
	Kathy Kamakaiwi, Assistant Professor, Division II
	Pat Gooch, Instructor, Division II
	Lei Lani Hinds, Assistant Professor, Division III
	Elizabeth Sakamaki, Instructor, Division III
	Ivan Nitta, Instructor,  Division IV
	Wayne Lewis,  Instructor, Division V
	Mike Jennings, Instructor, Division VI
	Shanon Miho, Counselor, Division VII
	Evelyn Puaa, Division VIII
	Ramsey Pedersen, Administration Liaison

	Jane Tompkins authored an article entitled "The Way We Live Now" 
in Change, November-December, 1992.  In the article she describes her 
desire for a career in academia as "a daily joy of working with students 
and colleagues in a close, interactive and nurturing community."  She 
laments the reality of her academic life as one where faculty, staff, and 
students are autonomously busy with individual achievements and work, and 
where little time and energy are spent building supportive and mutually 
reinforcing human relations.
	With busy and constantly changing lives, both here and away from 
HCC, and with continuous pressure to do more and more with less and less, 
we have an even greater need to provide each other support and help build 
a nurturing community here.  The activities, programs, projects, and 
presentations presented by the Faculty Development Committee this 
upcoming year will serve many purposes.  Many will be aimed at helping 
you keep up on cutting-edge knowledge and dynamic delivery methodologies 
to successfully transmit information to your students.  Others, will 
assist you in keeping up with the latest developments in your disciplines 
and new pedagogical techniques.  All are designed to help build our sense 
of community here at HCC.  Join us when and where you can, and let's all 
do our part in helping HCC be a close, interactive, and nurturing community.

	Since HCC's accreditation review in 1989, our goal on campus has 
been to complete a viable and informative Faculty Guidebook.  The Faculty 
Development Committee undertook this project last year.  A table of 
contents was offered by former Acting Assistant Dean Brian Isaacson.  
This table of contents was expanded and modified and individual topics 
were assigned to the various members of the committee.  The majority of 
topics have been completed and linked onto the guidebook.
	The guidebook is accessible through the World Wide Web.  You can 
use Netscape (if your computer has it) for full picture, sound, and 
graphics or lynx (typed at the pulua prompt) for text only access to the 
Web.  Click "Faculty Information" in the "Campus Information" paragraph 
of the HCC HomePage to view and use the guidebook.  
	We hope that our guidebook is a dynamic one.  If you have any 
ideas, suggestions, comments, or additions to it, there are several 
clickable direct e-mail links to Jerry Cerny, Faculty Development 
Coordinator, throughout the guidebook.  Click there and leave him a message.


Some understanding of teaching and learning styles, as explained by Myers 
Briggs Type Theory, can make us more effective teachers.

By Susan A. Holton

	In the first class, Professor Holton gives a detailed syllabus, 
noting exactly what will be covered every day of the semester, complete 
with all assignments and tests.
	In the next class, Professor Snyders says that they will study 
classical rhetoric, beginning with Ptahhotpe and going as far as they can 
get in one semester.
	In one class, the students must turn in a paper on the assigned 
date, or face a one grade deduction for each day the paper is late; in 
another, the paper is due on - or around - the assigned date.
	Students are experts at adaptation. From elementary school 
through college, they encounter vastly different types of teachers. The 
results of some research on personality type and teaching show that at 
each level of education, from elementary school through college, the 
predominate personality type of teachers changes. What that means to the 
student is that she or he is going to have to adapt to the different 
approaches of teaching and expectations for learning - or fail.
	I believe that some understanding of teaching and learning 
styles, as explained by Myers Briggs Type Theory, can make us more 
effective teachers. How can type theory help us in the classroom?  It can 
enable us to understand the learning style differences of our students, 
and to adapt our material to them.
	An unexpected joy for me this "season" is that I am going to 
teach classical rhetorical theory again. My "druthers" would be to have a 
group of enthusiastic young scholars, all of whom revel in a 
participative analysis of Phaedrus and a comparison of the rhetoric of 
Plato and Aristotle. But I must face reality - and acknowledge that many 
are not going to relish my version of the Socratic method.
	So I can use type theory to relate more effectively to the myriad 
of types in my classroom.
	First I must realize that my students are either "Introverts" or 
"Extroverts." The introverts are energized from within; the extroverts 
from without. In classical terms, the introverts would agree that the 
"unexamined life is not worth living;" the extroverts would argue (with 
apologies to Socrates) that the "unlived life is not worth examining." In 
order to meet the learning needs of both, I must provide a balance of 
opportunities for group work, and for individual reflection. I need to 
ask a question and give the students a minute (yes, literally) to answer. 
If I don't do that, then I'll have the extroverts answering each one and 
the introverts left thinking about the answer to the first question while 
I am on the third.
	I need to also think about the ways in which the students take in 
information. The "sensors" need concrete facts and details in order to 
learn; the "intuitives" learn abstractly. If I am talking about life in 
early Greece, I can to use filmstrips so that the "sensors" can literally 
see what I am talking about. I need to point out the references to love - 
or rhetoric - in the Phaedrus, and explain how I see the connection. In 
fact, this type of metaphoric language is very difficult for the "sensor" 
to understand. Because "intuitives" think in relationship and patterns 
and symbology, these students will revel in the analysis of the charioteer.
	Our behavior in class is seen very differently by students with 
two different preferences for coming to a decision or making judgments. A 
professor who has a preference for "thinking" will be logical and 
analytical and will give few comments about the student's performance. On 
the other hand, the professor with a preference for "feeling" will 
praise, criticize, support and correct the student. A student with a 
preference for "thinking" will not be satisfied with the praise, 
criticism and support; a student who prefers "feeling" will be upset if 
you only provide rational, logical analysis devoid of personal support.
	The last of the preferences is for either "judging" or
"perceiving" as ways to interact with the world and to deal with time. 
Those students with a preference for "judging" need structure and
guidelines. Those students appreciate the professor with the specific
guidelines. They are likely to have their work done on time if not early. 
Those who prefer "perceiving" are more likely to feel imprisoned by
structure. The very thing that has made the first student happy will make
the second feel trapped! The student who prefers "perceiving" wants to
know that you are flexible.
	As educators, we need to be aware of the differences in both 
teaching styles and learning styles. Then we can adapt our 
classroom work by first being aware of the differences in 
learning by type, and next by gearing our work not just to the 
students who are "just like me," but to the entire population who 
appear before us - eyes brimming with curiosity, and minds ready 
to engage in learning.

Book in the past, you know what a great deal it is.  Not only do 
you save money on travel, entertainment, and services here on 
Oahu, but also throughout the whole state and on the Mainland.  
The Aloha Airlines coupon in the book (buy one interisland 
round-trip ticket and get one free) is worth more than the $38.00 
price of the book.  The Faculty Development Committee will use 
the funds earned from these sales to purchase leis and light 
refreshments at presentations throughout the year and again offer 
two $250 Professional Development Awards to faculty in the
