Getting Off to a Good, Quick Start

Designed for future faculty, this workshop will enable you 1) to plan the earliest stages of your academic career to achieve success based on the lessons of previous new faculty from several sources, and 2) to reserve enough time to achieve what you most value in your career. The key is to develop the practices and habits that characterize successful faculty and to control and manage your time to make you more effective and efficient in your professional life. The workshop addresses ways to excel in teaching, collegiality, and, to an extent, research. We will also discuss the meaning of career success: What do you want to achieve in an academic career?  What is your idea of career success for yourself?  What are you willing to give for the freedom to move from institution to institution?

Writing a Teaching Philosophy for Academic Job Applications

A statement of your teaching philosophy has become a common addition to academic job applications. If it is not required, it's always a wise idea to include one.  The document gives you the opportunity to explain why you teach the way you do, to add credible evidence of your teaching effectiveness, and to counterbalance problematic student ratings.  In this workshop you will learn the conventions that have evolved and different models for writing these statements.
