Given increasing student mobility during dissertations, we will discuss strategies for the individual and group mentoring of doctoral students using structure, scaffolds, and emerging technologies in graduate programs. We will also consider the application of a functional framework for supervision, mentoring, and community-building at the individual, group, and program level based on examples in on-campus and online doctoral education.

Wine, Cheese, and Conversation on
LAUNCHING A SUCCESSFUL FACULTY CAREER

Monday, November 7, 2016
4:00 – 5:30 p.m.

Join us for a conversation with Jim Lang, distinguished teacher-scholar and writer on higher education, about the current landscape of teaching in higher education. We will consider how future faculty can best launch and sustain a successful university teaching career and discuss new research on teaching and learning in higher education, including ideas you can use in your teaching portfolios and job applications. We also will look at findings of a large-scale research project that studied faculty who were “quick starters” on the job, and identified what work habits enabled them to begin their careers so effectively. Finally, the conversation will include an overview of resources that future (and current) faculty can use to maintain currency in teaching and learning in higher education.
