Through engagement with experienced colleagues and with each other, keynotes, panels, discussions, roundtables and networking are designed to provide an integrated learning experience grounded in the scholarship of teaching and learning. We invite colleagues at the earlier stages of their teaching careers who are particularly dedicated to the science and art of teaching sociology to become part of this community of scholarly teachers.
Acceptances are made on a rolling basis but we would appreciate applications and registration fees no later than June 15, 2013; space is limited to 40 participants but a waiting list will be maintained. A non-refundable $60 registration fee covers conference materials, programming, and meals. Participants are expected to be Section members of the ASA Section on Teaching and Learning which sponsors this workshop. Early application is appreciated and ensures that there is space for you. The application form is available below.
A separate process for travel grants sponsored by SAGE Publications–“to prepare a new generation of leaders in the sociology ‘teaching movement’”–is also available. Information on this program is posted both on the Section website and at www.sage.com. The deadline for travel applications is March 1st, 2013. For information on the SAGE Awards, you may also contact Keith Roberts firstname.lastname@example.org.
AKD, The International Sociology Honor society also provides travel grants to members. The award covers up to $1,000 in travel expenses. This award is intended to advance the quality of teaching in the discipline of sociology. It is available to AKD members only and the selection committee will give the highest priority to AKD chapter representatives, especially those who are early in their careers (i.e., untenured assistant professors). Graduate students who are ABD and within a year of entering the job market are encouraged to apply as well. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2013.
