On the Cutting Edge: Faculty Professional Development Series
On the Cutting Edge runs a suite of workshops every year aimed at providing geoscience faculty with professional development around both pedagogy and content. 2YC faculty are encouraged to participate in these opportunities. Check the Cutting Edge website for upcoming workshops, webinars, and other events that you might be interested in being a part of.
July 17 - 20, 2013
College of William & Mary
This workshop will bring together faculty, administrators, and education researchers from across the country, to share successful programs and activities for supporting the success of all students in geoscience at 2YCs, both in and outside the classroom. We also welcome participation from representatives of professional societies who can contribute to this synthesis.
This workshop in conjunction with the 2013 ASLO meeting is a follow-on to the 2012 summer workshop on preparing 2YC students for the geoscience workforce or to transfer on for further study. This workshop will focus on issues specifically related to preparing students for careers in the ocean sciences.

Carleton College, Northfield, MN
By Invitation Only
The project brought together 25 educators representing 13 disciplines who addressed the isolation of community college instructors and their lack of engagement with discipline-based professional associations and NSF-funded projects. Materials created at the workshop will be hosted on the website and will include materials that can be used within each discipline (ready-to-go activities for faculty development and links to existing resources to improve undergraduate education and faculty professional development) as well as shared information so that we can continue to learn from one another across disciplines.
