EARLY CAREER GEOSCIENCE FACULTY WORKSHOP DEADLINE IS THIS SUNDAY, MARCH 24

The "Early Career Geoscience Faculty: Teaching, Research, and Managing Your Career" workshop is specifically designed for faculty members who are in their first three years of tenure-track teaching or starting a full-time position in the Fall. APPLY HERE BY MARCH 24. We hope you will join us for this resource-rich workshop where participants can engage in topical sessions involving 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.

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 three years of full-time teaching or starting a full-time position in the Fall. See the overview page for details.

PEER REVIEWS OF PAST EARLY CAREER WORKSHOPS

"The workshop for early career faculty was hands-down the most useful and impactful experience I have had in starting my faculty career. It has helped me implement new and effective teaching tools, time management tools, and student management/advising strategies, and has helped me find a network of colleagues that I can turn to for support."

"I attended the Workshop for Early Career Geoscience Faculty in my second year as an assistant professor in an interdisciplinary department with a balanced teaching and research mission. Being in the same room as other early career faculty who had a wide spectrum of academic responsibilities related to the breakdown of teaching-research-service helped me better understand how my academic niche fit in with academia in general, and helped me identify gaps in our educational system that I continue to work on even now."

This workshop is part of the On the Cutting Edge professional development program for current and future geoscience faculty, and is sponsored by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers with funding provided by NAGT.
