If you are in your first three years of a permanent academic position,
please apply to join us for a multi-day workshop in a stimulating and
resource-rich environment where you will participate in sessions on topics
including effective teaching strategies, course design, establishing a
research program in a new setting, working with research students,

   methods for assessment.
   - Share ideas and strategies for teaching courses.
   - Consider successful strategies for maintaining an active research
   program and advising/supervising undergraduate and/or graduate research
   - Discuss life as an early-career faculty member and explore ways to

The registration fee is estimated to be $1250 ($1200 for NAGT members)
which will cover the workshop, accommodations on the University of Maryland
campus, and most meals. Participants will pay for some meals, and
participants or their home institutions must provide transportation to and
from the workshop. In cases where the cost of attending this workshop would
cause financial hardship, you may apply for a stipend to help defray these
costs. Ask your department or university for funds to attend as well – many
have been quite supportive. The registration fee will be due in May after
notification of acceptance into the workshop.

Our National Science Foundation grant provides funding for the remainder of
the operational costs of the workshop. To be supported by these funds, a
participant must be either a US citizen, a permanent resident, or in the
employ of a US institution. If you don't meet these requirements and are
interested in participating in this workshop at your own expense, please
indicate this on the application form.

*"The workshop totally changed my view of teaching from teacher-oriented to
student-oriented. It's no more what I want to teach but what students need
to learn or take away from the course. This is the essential point that I
will keep in mind when I design course goals, syllabi, in-class activities,
assignments, and exams."*

*"I am heading back to my institution feeling that I am better equipped to
be a more efficient and effective teacher, researcher, colleague, father,
husband, and community member."*
