Computer Science departments have experienced significant course enrollment increases and many Ph.D. granting departments have introduced or increased the number of academic teaching faculty positions that have academic rank. The one-day workshop held in association with SIGCSE will focus on the professional development of teaching track faculty (professor of practice, instructor, clinical faculty, lecturer, etc.) in Ph.D. granting departments.

The workshop fills a crucial need as many Ph.D. granting departments have limited experience on how to mentor, evaluate, and promote this new type of teaching faculty. The sessions will focus on how teaching faculty can strategize their involvement in departmental as well as research activities, different forms of scholarship and leadership activities to pursue, and best practices for success, promotion, and advancement. Academic leaders involved in supervising and evaluating teaching track faculty will provide their perspective and insights.

Limited travel funds are available for participants. The deadline to receive full consideration for financial travel support is Thursday, January 25, 2018.  After January 25, applications will be accepted until capacity is reached.
