Navigating Academia: Preparing for the Job Search
On Friday April 11th, a panel of TLTE faculty and advanced graduate students responded to questions and concerns about preparing for the job search in academia. Topics of discussion included preparing a C.V. as well as a research and a teaching presentation, knowing what to expect during a campus visit and an interview, and getting advice about organizing materials, negotiating salary, and different types of positions.
Proposal to Presentation to Publication
On Friday October 4, 2013 the TLTE-GSA organized an event for graduate students to discuss the details of preparing for and presenting at research conferences and transforming research into publications with faculty members in the department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education. The participating faculty included Dr. Theresa Catalano, Dr. Lauren Gatti, Dr. Elizabeth Lewis, Dr. Karl Hostetler, and Dr. Guy Trainin.
Purpose of the TLTE-GSA:
The Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education Graduate Student Association (TLTE-GSA) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln exists to serve and represent graduate students within this department of the College of Education and Human Sciences. In cooperation with departmental faculty and administration, TLTE-GSA promotes the intellectual community of graduate education; sponsors opportunities for professional development; creates opportunities for social interaction among graduate students; and advocates for issues relevant to graduate students and graduate education.
