Options are increasing for PhD recipients who want to pursue a career focused on undergraduate teaching. Most PhD-granting departments have introduced a teaching faculty track, often with academic rank, while many masters-granting and primarily undergraduate institutions are expanding their computer science departments. Teaching-focused faculty often pursue research with undergraduates or research on computer science education.

This workshop is intended for PhD students and postdocs who want to learn about academic career options with a focus on teaching and gain a better understanding of the landscape of academic positions. Experienced and successful academic leaders as well as junior faculty in different teaching oriented positions will highlight how to best prepare for the different teaching positions and compare teaching-focused career paths.
