The course is conducted as a seminar that meets once a week for nine weeks. Sessions 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 will cover aspects of faculty careers relevant to all disciplines (core sessions). Sessions 2, 4, 6, and 8 will be divided into two rooms and cover discipline-specific topics (split sessions). The class meetings will include both formal presentations by speakers and discussion panels.
The two discipline-specific sections are: Humanities/Social Sciences/Education (HSSE), Sciences/Engineering (SciEng). You are free to attend the section which best suits your field. For example, students in the social sciences may want to attend either the humanities or sciences sections, or some of each depending on the week's focus.
Keeping in line with our goal of continuing intellectual conversations with presenters, panelists, and participants after class, networking receptions will follow each core session. These will either be held in the outside courtyard of Jordan Hall or the hallway outside of the room, weather-depending.
Post docs, TGR, and other clinical/research trainees may audit the course. Please indicate your interest by filling out this form.
