Managing Your Career

Facilitated by Darna Dufour, Professor of Anthropology and Associate Dean, and Michael Lightner, Professor and Chair of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering

A tenure track appointment at a large Research 1 university like CU-Boulder is a wonderful opportunity. Professors Dufour and Lightner will host a forum on strategies for success. They will share their own experiences in addressing the major challenge of finding time for both research and teaching, and offer general strategies for success in teaching. They will also discuss the importance of learning the academic culture and the role of service early in the pretenure period. Finally, they will discuss elements of real-life successes and failures in achieving reappointment and tenure.

The FTEP Symposia are designed and provided for our instructional faculty members. Participation in FTEP Workshops and Symposia is open to Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, Instructors, Senior Instructors and Scholars-in-Residence, as per your official HR Job Class.If you are planning to participate in this symposium and are in a college other than the presenter, you may plan in advance to adapt the teaching tools in this event to your discipline.
