Update on teaching workshops/teaching posters at the 2001 International
C. elegans Meeting

This update includes the panelists for the teaching workshops, the room
where the workshops will be held, and two additional teaching posters
that were omitted from the previous list. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TIMES
ORIGINAL MEETING SCHEDULE.  Please direct any questions to Jim Lissemore

Teaching Workshop I (Sat. June 23, noon-1 PM, Bradley 218)
"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

Leilani Miller, Santa Clara University

Teaching Workshop II (Sun. June 24, noon-1 PM, Bradley 218)
"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.
