Mark your calendars now. Teaching at Teaching-Intensive Institutions, New England’s annual daylong workshop for doctoral students and postdocs, will be hosted by Westfield State University in Massachusetts on October 6 from 9:30 until 3.
As always, the event will feature panels, discussions, job-search information, and job counseling sessions. This year we’ll have a plenary panel featuring directors of teaching centers at all kinds of teaching-focused institutions, including community colleges, public regional universities, and liberal arts colleges. Sessions will focus on combining teaching and research, student advising, conducting research with undergraduates, and many other topics.
The day is free for all participants, but attendees must register in advance. Watch this blog for the registration link.
The event is sponsored, so far, by Bridgewater State University, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, the University of Rhode Island, the University of New Hampshire, Brown University, and the University of Connecticut.
