Professional Development Workshop for Teaching-Track Faculty at SIGCSE 2019


2019-SIGCSEThe CRA Education Committee, with support from Google, is organizing a Professional Development Workshop for Teaching-Track Faculty at SIGCSE 2019. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 from 8:30 AM- 4:00 PM. We are now accepting applications to the workshop! Click here for more information and a tentative agenda. 2018 event information is available here.

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 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 departments have limited experience on how to mentor, evaluate, and promote this new type of 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.
