Professional Development

This entry is a collection of resources for professional development.

The Geography Faculty Development Alliance offers summer workshops for junior faculty and advanced graduate students who teach. In addition to pedagogical workshops and information about how to manage a beginning academic career, the workshops get very positive ratings for the collegiality and networking that occurs when like-minded people spend a couple of weeks together. Professor Ken Foote has an NSF grant to fund the workshops: check out the entire program at http://www.colorado.edu/geography/gfda/gfda.html.
