Join us for a multi-day workshop in a stimulating and resource-rich environment where you will participate in sessions on topics including effective teaching strategies, course design, establishing a research program in a new setting, working with research students, balancing professional and personal responsibilities, time-management, and other topics of interest to the participants. The program from the 2009 workshop will give you a good idea of what we do in these workshops (it includes a link to the NSF visit schedule from 2009).
Participants in this workshop must hold a teaching position at a university or college (including two-year colleges) for the following academic year and must be in their first four years of full-time teaching at the time of application (or be starting their first year of full-time teaching in the fall).

Some of the workshop expenses are covered through a CCLI grant from the Division of Undergraduate Education of the National Science Foundation. Participants or their home institutions must provide transportation to and from the workshop and a workshop registration fee. The grant covers the some of the costs of the workshop including some of the food and lodging costs.
