Professional Development Workshops

ACT PhDs and postdocs will be required to attend one CTL teaching-related workshop (e.g., Active Learning in Large Classes, Mentoring Students in the Lab, Teaching with Primary Literature), one workshop on academic or industrial career paths (e.g., How to Develop a Research Program, Technology Commercialization), one workshop on communicating science (e.g., Writing for Grants, Technical Writing in Industry, Communicating Science to the Media), and a final workshop on a topic of their choice (total of 4 workshops per year).

Trainees also have the opportunity to attend additional professional development workshops. In addition to the workshops offered through REACT on career-related topics, the School of Engineering runs workshops on academic and industrial career paths and CTL offers teaching related workshops.
