New Mid-Career Faculty Programming: Fabulous Fridays!
This year Faculty Development will be offering a new series geared toward post-tenure faculty, called Fabulous Fridays. This wine-and-cheese series will showcase various research, teaching and service opportunities that might offer faculty some new ideas or help them connect with programs of interest.
Short presentations by representatives of the programs, with questions afterwards, will be followed by time for mingling. The series will be held from 3:30-5 p.m. In the Fireside Room on the third Fridays of the month, with the exception of December, January and May.
Among the topics already suggested by several post-tenure faculty are these for this fall:
- Sept. 17: Supporting Faculty Scholarship: Faculty Development Grants; the new Faculty Writers Program; and writing groups on campus
- Oct. 15: International Opportunities: teaching abroad; IE Travel Grants; and CIEE seminars
- Nov. 19: Expanding your Teaching Horizons: Writing across the Curriculum; Honors Seminars; and Service Learning
Topics for the spring will be announced later. If you would like to suggest topics, please contact Pam Nice at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look for upcoming post-tenure Faculty Development workshops and retreats on sabbatical preparation, the Road toward Professorship, and Redefining Career Goals.
Though geared toward post-tenure faculty, ALL faculty are welcome to the Fabulous Fridays. Look for bookmarks in your mail!
