Dr. Claudia Rankins, Program Director at the National Science Foundation, will discuss NSF CAREER Awards for early career faculty in the natural and life sciences and the social and behavioral sciences.  She will send her presentation slides in advance, so that the webinar should be more of a free-flowing discussion rather than just a presentation overview.  Please sign-up below so we can send you a copy of those slides.

Holden Reading Room, 4th Floor of H.T. Sampson Library

 

This month's meeting focuses on Wendy Belcher's book, Writing A Journal Article in 12 Weeks.

These monthly meetings help faculty "get in the mood" and focus singularly on their writing.  They allow faculty to come together and commit to writing in a common space for a certain number of hours with no external distractions.  We provide coffee, tea and cookies to fuel your work and collaboration with fellow faculty.   During these monthly meetings, the Center facilitates the formation of small writing groups of like-minded colleagues with similar projects or writing goals.

Registration is requested, but not required.

Do you want to supplement your face-to-face, online or hybrid courses with video?  Video can perform a variety of functions that enhance instruction:  welcome or introduction to the course; step-by-step tutorials for specific techniques or methods; demonstrations of play sequences, social interactions or diverse perspectives; and lectures as part of flipped classrooms or as supplements to classroom activities.  This workshop will help faculty plan, shoot, edit and disseminate instructional video.

Light refreshments will be available.
