Preparing an Effective Case for Third-Year Review, Promotion, and Tenure
Presenters: Timothy Austin (Provost and Academic Vice President) & David Seybert (Member of University Promotion & Tenure Committee)
When: Wednesday, March 29 3:00-4:15
Where: College Hall 104
Provost Timothy Austin and a member of the University Promotion and Tenure Committee will provide suggestions for preparing a strong application packet for third-year review, and for promotion and tenure. Brief presentations will be followed by time for questions and answers. Sample personal statements and vitae will be distributed. This session is designed primarily for those who will be applying for third-year review, or promotion and tenure in the future. It is equally useful for department chairs and faculty who mentor faculty and vote on promotion decisions.
This event is repeated annually.
The Easy Way to Teach a Writing Intensive Course
Presenters: Jim Purdy (DU Writing Center and English) and Jerry Stinnett (English and First Year Writing)
When: Tuesday, April 11 12:15-1:30 p.m.
Where: Union 613
Are you teaching a Writing-Intensive Course and worry about taking time away from material you need to cover in order to teach writing? Does it seem like students should have already learned how to write by the time they reach your class? Or perhaps you feel unqualified to teach writing? Are you wondering how you will be able to grade additional writing assignments? These are good questions that many writing-intensive course instructors have. Many, however, are borne of misunderstandings of what writing-intensive courses are supposed to be about. At this workshop, faculty and graduate students will learn ways to make writing-intensive course instruction easier and how it can supplement-and even improve-student acquisition of course material-all while not requiring you to stop your class to teach grammar.
