We are increasing our professional development offerings so that we can assist with preparing you for careers both within and outside of academe. As part of our “PROF-it: Professors-in-Training” program, we have partnered with UMBC’s Faculty Development Center to provide you with training for faculty positions. We also have a partnership with the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) which will award $2000 Teaching Fellowships to five postdoctoral fellows and graduate students for Spring 2012.  Awardees will teach a course on one of CCBC’s campuses, have a faculty mentor from CCBC to guide them through the semester, participate in two UMBC/CCBC Teaching Fellows cohort dinners with faculty and administrators on CCBC’s campus, and receive $2000 (salaried) as a financial award.

Any postdoctoral fellow or graduate student interested in a full-time faculty career or a part-time adjunct position should have receive training. The next workshop (“Developing a Teaching Portfolio”) will be led by Dr. Linda Hodges on Friday, Oct. 14, 2011 at 12 noon in the UC Ballroom Lounge – RSVP:  http://my.umbc.edu/groups/promise/events/8942.

All postdocs and students who are interested in teaching at CCBC, must plan to attend the seminars that are sponsored by PROF-it: https://promisesuccessseminars.wordpress.com/professors-in-training-prof-it/ as participation in these seminars are part of the application process.

All graduate students and postdocs are invited to attend and participate in the seminars regardless of plans to apply for the Teaching Fellows program at CCBC. All seminars, including Friday’s workshop, are open to all interested parties.  Students and postdocs from UM College Park, UMB (Founding Campus, downtown Baltimore), and neighboring campuses are invited to attend the seminar. If you aren’t from UMBC, you may RSVP as a reply/response to this post.
