Workshop Overview

Note: the 2005 workshop is over. Read more general information about the "Early Career Geoscience Faculty" workshops (including a link to next year's), or read on for more information about the 2005 workshop.

Participants must have a faculty position at a two-year or four-year college or at a university and be in their first four years of full-time teaching.

Workshop goals for participants:

Within one year of the workshop, each participant will write a progress report and will submit either a short (one to two page) letter of advice for other early career faculty or an assignment or activity developed after the workshop to be posted on a Resource Website.

Participants in this workshop must hold a teaching position at a two-year or four-year college or university and be in their first four years of full-time teaching at the time of application.

The operational costs of the workshop as well as room, board, and workshop materials are covered by a grant from the NSF Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE-0127310). Participants or their home institutions must provide transportation to and from the workshop. In cases of unusual hardship, we will be able to offer a few small stipends to help defray travel costs (Application deadline April 13, 2005). For more information about the workshops, including travel funds, please visit general information for workshop participants.

The workshop size is limited. The final list of participants will be established with the goal of assembling a group representing a wide range of experiences and educational environments. The application deadline is March 15, 2005.

The workshop will be held at the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA. Participants will be housed in dorms on campus and will eat meals on campus.
