Program Title: Professional Development Portfolio

Contact Person/Office: Seamus Walsh / Admin

School: Brophy College Prep. swalsh@brophyprep.org

Program Description: The Portfolio process is an amalgam of goal-setting, data collection, professional development movements (e.g. observing another teacher each semester, attending a conference or reading a book or such related to the profession, etc.) and reflection for all teaching faculty, counselors, and administrators, and each Portfolio is given feedback at the end of the year, if not both during and at the end.

Rationale: The Portfolio process offers a structure to guide community members through professional development opportunities and goal-setting; to engage in the IPP components of pre-lection, context, experience, reflection, and hopefully action; and to provide a lasting artifact (document) that helps community members remember where they’ve been, what they’ve worked on, how students have seen them and their courses, etc.

Leadership: Disseminated and collected by the administrative offices and, ideally, department chairs.

Implementation: Pretty simple. Disseminate the document and have benchmark dates wherein updates are expected and the digital document is collected.

Processes and Resources: At this point it’s a Word document for a variety of reasons, but any platform that works for a school would do.

Finances: Don’t cost nothing.

Rewards: It facilitates a great many things, and provides a time capsule of sorts. So instead of lots of products that deal with a teacher’s year (student evaluations, goals, reflections on progress, observations of other teachers, etc.), they’re all batched in the same place, they promote reflective practice, they’re easily shared with others, and teachers can always look back and see where they’ve been.

Time (When/Length): Begins at the beginning of the year meetings, and is sent to administration by the end of the year-end meetings.

Location (Space): Digital.

Accountability/Assessment: Each teacher receives a lengthy administrative reflection of both the quantity and the quality of components in June or July of the year thereafter.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
