Join us for a multi-day workshop in a stimulating and resource-rich environment where you will participate in sessions on topics including effective teaching strategies, course design, establishing a research program in a new setting, working with research students, balancing professional and personal responsibilities, and time-management.
"It generated many new ideas for me! I will go back to my work with a much clearer sense of purpose and vision. It gave me time to think about the big picture and learn from my peers."
"Meeting other faculty in my position did a lot to relieve the stress of feeling that one is all by oneself in struggling with teaching and research. Personal discussions with the leaders were very helpful. And of course, the binder full of ideas is gold."
"This has been one of the most worthwhile experiences in my graduate-faculty career."
Participants must have a full-time faculty position at a two-year or four-year college or a university at the time of the workshop and must be in their first four years of full-time teaching.
