Developing your identity as a 2YC faculty member: a workshop for geoscience graduate students

Registration Deadline: February 10, 2020

Friday, February 21, 2020

Mt. San Antonio College, 1100 N. Grand Ave., Walnut, CA 91789

Workshop Description:
Spend a day with fellow geoscience educators and graduate students in Southern California to discuss fostering successful professional pathways as a community college geoscience faculty member. This workshop will bring together individuals who are currently working as 2YC instructors in Southern California as well as those who are preparing for future work in the 2YC geoscience community. Workshop sessions will focus on the community college job search and interview process; developing a teaching philosophy/teaching statement; delivering a teaching demonstration; the 2YC probationary (tenure) process; diversity and inclusion in undergraduate STEM education; teaching strategies to move you (and your students) beyond a lecture-heavy classroom model; and professional development opportunities for 2YC faculty and students.
