COVID-19 Impact on New Faculty Workshops
Safety is a core value of the American Chemical Society; as such, the health and well-being of our members, community, and staff are paramount.
We will be holding a virtual New Faculty Workshop during the timeframe of July 21-28. Faculty who applied to attend the original June or August in-person workshops should have received prior communications regarding this virtual event.
We intend to make a select number of workshop sessions open for up to 50 additional attendees. While we are unable to accommodate any additional workshop participants for the full event, we would like to enable faculty who did not apply to the June or August events to participate for a portion of the workshop. The topics, dates, and times of these sessions are still being coordinated. If you would like to register in advance for these open sessions, please complete the registration form. This will enable us to communicate with you once we have additional logistics information.
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 630 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. Faculty from both 2- and 4-year institutions are encouraged to apply; please see the Frequently Asked Questions page for additional eligibility details.
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
- Student mentoring
- Effective time management
