Session 26. Followup to Workshop for New Faculty in Physics and Astronomy

Special Session, Monday, May 31, 2004, 2:00-3:30pm, 710/712

This special session is a followup to the annual Workshop for New Faculty in Physics and Astronomy and will focus on issues relevant to the improvement of teaching and the needs of young faculty as effective undergraduate and graduate course instructors while surviving the tenure process. The session consists of four talks followed by a panel discussion. We encourage the participation of faculty who were unable to attend the workshops as well as postdocs and advanced graduate students who are contemplating faculty careers.
