The University of Massachusetts Amherst, a CIRTL member, is co-sponsoring "Teaching at Teaching Intensive Institutions" on Friday, October 6. The one-day, face-to-face teaching institute will take place at Westfield State University in Westfield, Massachusetts.
The day-long institute will introduce graduate students and post-docs to faculty careers at teaching-intensive institutions. Many faculty enjoy rewarding careers at colleges and universities that primarily emphasize teaching, including liberal arts colleges, community colleges, and regional comprehensive universities. This event will provide participants with a valuable opportunity to learn from and network with faculty and deans from a range of teaching-intensive institutions across the New England region. They will be available to review and offer advice on CVs and cover letters, so bring yours along. In addition, sessions are scheduled on a variety of topics pertinent to careers in Teaching-Intensive institutions. Space is limited and registration is required.
The instituted is offered at no cost. Participants will be responsible for their own travel and lodging; lunch will be provided.
More information, including registration deadlines and contact information, will be provided as soon as it is available
