One-Day Regional Institute: Teaching at Teaching-Intensive Institutions

Westfield State University
Friday, October 6, 2017

The University of Massachusetts Amherst, a CIRTL Network institution, co-sponsored “Teaching at Teaching Intensive Institutions” on Friday, October 6, 2017. The one-day, face-to-face teaching institute took place at Westfield State University in Westfield, Massachusetts.

The day-long institute introduced graduate students and postdocs to faculty careers at teaching-intensive institutions. Many faculty enjoy rewarding careers at colleges and universities that primarily emphasize teaching, including liberal arts colleges, community colleges, and regional comprehensive universities. This event provided participants with a valuable opportunity to learn from and network with faculty and deans from a range of teaching-intensive institutions across the New England region. 

The institute was offered at no cost. Participants were responsible for their own travel and lodging; lunch was provided. Questions? Contact Amhert’s Office of Professional Development at opd@grad.umass.edu
