Promotion & Tenure Workshop

The promotion and tenure (P&T) process is often a challenging and stressful experience for tenure-track faculty in academia. A great deal of this stress stems from uncertainty in how to prepare for this important milestone. Accordingly, the goal of this interactive workshop is to share some best practices and guidance on the P&T process, drawing from the facilitator’s own experience and that of other colleagues who have successfully navigated this challenge.

Creating and Maintaining Relevance and a Research Portfolio During Tough Times

Looking for a job is extremely challenging at the best of times. Whether you are currently employed, have recently graduated or have been laid off it is helpful to showcase your skills, grow your network and stay involved in your community. One way to showcase your skills is to create a research portfolio. In my prior job, I created case studies which later became the bulk of my research portfolio. When I started End to End User Research we started a project with students to stay relevant, network and be involved in the community. I will review how to create compelling case studies, the elements of a research portfolio and brainstorm some ideas for projects to showcase your skills.
