Online registration is now open and will continue through MondayJune 30. Advanced graduate students and postdocs interested in teaching at liberal arts colleges, newly hired tenure-track or term appointment faculty, and faculty just completing their first or second years are encouraged to participate.

Workshop Description: One of the goals for the weekend is to help each participant generate a strategic plan for the next 2-3 years of their career. This will allow each participant to focus on the goals, strategies and actions that will help them succeed in their professional lives and thrive in their personal lives too. Another goal is to provide time for conversation between early career scientists as a mechanism for networking, sharing successes and challenges and encouraging one another. To make this happen, the weekend will be a mixture of time alone for reflection and strategic planning, time in small groups for giving each other feedback on your evolving plans, and time for discussions and presentations with the full group about teaching, pedagogies, establishing a research group, writing proposals for external funding and more.
