New Faculty Workshops
The New Faculty Workshops focus on sharing and developing essential skills that faculty need to successfully navigate the early years of their research and teaching careers. There is an emphasis on implementing active learning strategies in the classroom.
Since 2012, more than 465 chemistry faculty have attended the New Faculty Workshops.
This is a competitive application process, and we are limited in the number of participants we can invite to attend this event. Applicants must be in their first, second, or third year of appointment at their institution to be eligible, and preference will be given to faculty in chemistry departments or who clearly demonstrate research and teaching within chemistry. More senior faculty will be considered on a space-available basis only.
A limited number of scholarships are available, thanks to a generous contribution from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement.
To be considered for acceptance to the New Faculty Workshop, your application packet must include the following:
- A completed application form
- A letter of support from your department chair
- A copy of an NIH or NSF-style biosketch
Workshop Topics Include
- Implementation of evidence-based teaching practices in the classroom
- Integrating teaching and research
