Free ticketed event
We propose a half day workshop focused on three skills critical for success as new engineering educators and scholars. These skills – understanding personal and academic identity, building teams, and community awareness – are widely acknowledged as important (in situations as diverse as job advertisements or discussions of “academic fit”), and yet are not usually addressed in an explicit way in the typical training programs of graduate or professional schools.
This workshop experience will involve actionable approaches, practiced during the workshop. The majority of the time will be devoted to actual work. Participants will receive a package of handouts for use during and after the workshop and will be introduced to key resources for further development of these and related skills.
