The Flexible Calendar Program provides in-lieu-of instruction time for faculty to participate in development activities that are related to staff, student, and instructional improvement. "Acceptable activities" can be designed to achieve a wide range of staff development goals and can be delivered in many formats including in-service training, workshops, conferences, seminars, individual or small group planned projects, and institutionally planned activities. As such, it is a powerful strategy for implementing specific improvements in the development of colleges as collaborative, innovative workplaces. It is thus both a strategy for specific instructional improvement and a vehicle for basic organizational change in the way faculty and staff work and learn together.
