Call for Presenters: August 2017 Grad Academy and Grading Symposium
Faculty, academic professionals, and experienced TAs are invited to participate as presenters and facilitators in the Graduate Academy for College Teaching (August 21-22, 2017), CITL's program for new TAs with classroom teaching responsibilities, and the Symposium on Grading & Office Hours (August 22, 2017), our program for those TAs with non-classroom responsibilities. There are opportunities to create your own concurrent session, facilitate a lesson from a pre-existing lesson plan, or facilitate microteaching sessions (a great choice for those with some experience but who may not feel like an expert quite yet). Follow this link to volunteer.
ICES Longitudinal Profiles
ICES Longitudinal Profiles contain a chronological listing of your ICES item #1 and #2 evaluation results. Profiles are often utilized in promotion & tenure applications, teaching award decisions, and department third-year reviews. Faculty and teaching assistants can request a profile at any time by completing our web-based Longitudinal Profile Request Form (it will require a University secure log-in). If you have questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 333-3490. It takes approximately 10-14 business days to produce and send the profile. All profiles are paper-based and not available via e-mail. View a sample longitudinal profile.
