Are you a SLACer?

 

Kevin Gannon, from Grand Valley University, in Iowa, offers some good advice in Vitae for those who will be applying for jobs at Small Liberal Arts Colleges and other teaching-focused schools.

 

He suggests, among other things, that you tailor your cover letter to the job, connect your research to your teaching, and prepare well to talk about teaching in a lot of different contexts.

 

Although he is talking about small liberal arts schools, much of what he advises can apply at a larger regional public school, a teaching focused religious college, or a community college.  Click on over and see what he has to say.
