2018 Professional Development Course Catalog - Update 11/28/2017

Dear Judiciary employees:

We are delighted to present the 2018 course catalog for the continuing education of the Judiciary’s professionals. The Department of Professional Development, under the leadership of Shamika Dent-Williams, has worked tirelessly with department staff and staff across the college to offer an exciting array of courses in the upcoming year. You can select from a variety of learning opportunities to meet your time constraints and professional commitments. Whether you enroll in a classroom experience, webinar, or an online course, you will be pleased by the variety of topics to choose from. As you know, we are working behind the scenes to develop the Judiciary’s proficiency-based education system, which is a performance-based approach to education. Focusing on closing gaps between what we know and what we do is being promoted throughout the Judiciary. We heartedly recommend when looking for a course that you consider an option that will both tickle your curiosity and support you in your job performance. As a result of your replies to our annual survey, we have lots of new course offerings in 2018, including a full day First Aid course and courses on Emotional Intelligence, Giving and Receiving Feedback, and Excelling in Your Career. Back by popular demand are our business writing courses, Change and Conflict Management, and Project Management courses. Supporting our efforts to bring adult learning principles and strategies to our classrooms, we are offering a Train the Trainer series for current and future faculty. We hope you enjoy perusing the catalog and you take advantage of our continuing education course offerings. We look forward to serving you in 2018 and assisting you in your learning, performance excellence, and professional development towards carrying out our mission.
