Professor of the 21st Century Framework

Readers are likely familiar with the term "life-long learner," but what about the people teaching those learners? Educators are life-long learners, too, and perfecting teaching skills is an equally endless process. Algonquin College's Professor of the 21st Century hub serves as a resource to educators, providing tools to expand seven key competency areas. These competency areas engulf topics such as professional development, curriculum creation, and implementing classroom technology. Several readings and documents are embedded under each competency sub-topic. Additionally, the Faculty Self-Assessment page outlines suggested competency benchmarks for 3 levels of educators: new educators (0-2 years of experience); seasoned educators (2-7 years of experience); and established educators (7+ years of experience). For example, the guidelines suggest a new professor can describe their learning style and understand how it impacts students' learning styles, while a professor with slightly more experience can adjust their learning style to better fit students' needs. A chart with these benchmarks is linked under the Professor of the 21st Century Framework Levelled Document section of the Faculty Self-Assessment page. Competency areas and sub-topics were developed in partnership with academic leaders and approved by the College Academic Council.
