October 2013


October 2   - Reflect, Refine, Plan: Comprehensive Career Mapping, Part I
Location: Rose Library 5211; light breakfast will be provided

Register


With so many demands on faculty energy and time, how do faculty develop a meaningful plan for career development that’s both comprehensive and flexible enough to accommodate the unexpected? This workshop introduces participants to the foundations of good career mapping: identifying key values, career commitments, and professional goals. (Part II, offered later this semester, will engage participants in practical exercises for making decisions and creating a multi-year career plan). Participants will leave with the key components of a statement of professional purpose or mission to guide career planning.

This workshop is designed to help faculty make progress towards the following outcomes:

  • Identify core professional values and/or commitments; and
  • Develop a clear statement of professional purpose.

Facilitator: Douglas Harrison, Ph.D., Department of English and Center for Faculty Innovation

In this scholarly writers' group, individual scholarly productivity will be fostered through participation in a writing community that encourages and supports the cultivation and completion of writing projects. The hallmarks of this facilitated scholarship community include: developing an individual scholarly writer’s profile; developing a writing project plan; guided peer review of drafts; time for writing; editing deadlines; and celebration of success. Whether working on a manuscript, book project, or other writing project, this experience will help scholars move toward project completion.

This community is designed to help faculty make progress towards the following outcomes:

  • Increase self-awareness of writing process and habits;
  • Hone peer and self-editing skills; and
  • Complete or nearly complete a writing project for submission.

Facilitator: Jennifer Byrne, Ph.D., Department of Political Science



October 16 - Reflect, Refine, Plan: Comprehensive Career Mapping, Part II
Location: Rose Library 5211; light breakfast will be provided

Register


This workshop builds on the skills and insights of Part I, which focused on identifying key values and commitments necessary to build effective career maps (however, participants need not have taken Part I to participate in this event). In this session, participants will engage in practical exercises for making decisions about how to use their time and energy as part of a multi-year career plan. Participants will leave with specific goals, objectives, and activities – pegged to timelines and benchmarks - in at least one area of faculty life.

This workshop is designed to help faculty make progress towards the following outcomes:

  • Articulate specific career goals in at least one area of faculty life; and
  • Develop concrete objectives that measure progress toward goals and purpose.
