Attention Division K New Faculty!
This Division K New Faculty Seminar is an exciting opportunity to meet, share, and network with other new faculty and the facilitators. The seminar is designed to:
- Provide support for new teaching and teacher education faculty members,
- Ask long-term Division K members about their experiences-particularly how they made the transition from graduate student to faculty member
- Examine various methodological approaches to research,
- Create professional networks that will last a lifetime, and
- Make important connections that create a community of new scholars.
The preconference organizers are established scholars who will discuss ways to thrive in your career. Our division is committed to supporting new faculty! Last year we had a many more people who were interested than we could accept. We only have 30 spaces and those who register early will be given priority. The pre conference starts on Thursday, April 7 at 4:00. We meet again on Friday, April 8 from 9:00 – 12:00.
The deadline for Applications for the Division K New Faculty Preconference is Friday, December 18, 2015!
