The Teaching Workshop organizing committee (Caroline Goutte, Taylor
Allen, Jim Lissemore, Mike Palopoli, Bruce Wightman, Becky Kohn, and
Jennifer Miskowski) have organized two teaching workshops and a teaching
poster session for the 2001 International C. elegans Meeting.  An update
listing the panelists will be sent out shortly before the meeting.
Please direct any questions to Jim Lissemore (jlissemore at jcu.edu)


Teaching Workshop I (Sat. June 23, noon-1 PM)
"What is life like at a predominantly undergraduate (i.e. teaching)
institution and how can I get a job at one?"

This workshop should be of interest to graduate students and postdocs
who are considering a career at a predominantly undergraduate
institution (PUI).  The challenges facing faculty members at PUIs are
substantially different from those typically encountered at a research
university and the job search process is also quite different.  This
panel will discuss issues such as teaching loads, research expectations
and opportunities, how to find PUI job openings, and hiring criteria at

Teaching Workshop II (Sun. June 24, noon-1 PM)
"Maintaining a research program at a predominantly undergraduate

This workshop should be of interest to faculty members at PUIs and those
considering a career at a PUI.  Faculty at most PUIs are
encouraged/expected to provide research experiences for undergraduates
and many PUIs require publications for tenure and promotion. The
panelists will discuss issues such as conducting research with
undergraduates, mistakes to avoid, external and internal funding
sources, and grant administration.

Teaching Poster Session (Sat. June 23, 4-5 PM)

Eleven teaching posters (numbers 592-602) that describe the use of C.
elegans in teaching will be up for the entire meeting. Authors have been
asked to be at their posters from 4-5 PM on Sat. June 23.  The teaching
