Workshop Attendance Policy and Procedures
When circumstances prevent a CITS instructor from attending a workshop, he or she is expected to contact the faculty liaison to discuss the meeting's agenda. If an instructor develops a pattern of repeated absences over a two-year period, the CITS UMD faculty liaison or CITS director will discuss the situation with the instructor and may notify the high school administration of the problem. If participation does not improve, CITS will decide whether the instructor continues in the CITS program.
Instructors approved to teach a UMD CITS course, but who are temporarily not teaching, or who haven't started teaching, also are expected to attend all workshops in their discipline. This insures that instructors stay current with trends in their fields and understand any changes to UMD courses.
CITS staff prepare sign-in sheets for every workshop, as well as folders of workshop materials. UMD faculty liaisons collect the sign-in sheets, note the instructors not in attendance, and give the sign-in sheet to the CITS director. The faculty liaison confers with the CITS director when problems arise concerning teacher attendance. At the conclusion of each workshop, Certificates of Attendance are provided to teachers documenting the professional development contact hours.
