The Teaching Support Centre presents a Faculty Mentor Session for tenured and pre-tenure faculty on:
The Sabbatical Leave
Friday, March 20, 2015
1:30 – 3:30 p.m.
Teaching Support Centre
Room 122, Weldon Library
For many members of faculty, the Sabbatical Leave is an essential element in the development of their research and publication projects. The Leave provides a valuable opportunity to put aside teaching and administrative responsibilities, to focus on scholarly research, experiments, writing, and to connect with colleagues located elsewhere.
The panel will consider ways to make the most of the sabbatical leave, from knowing the rules and applying, to planning and organizing: setting realistic goals and doing your best to meet them. What are some of the challenges faced (moving to a different country, travelling with family)? What pitfalls to avoid?
Join the workshop, bring your questions and concerns, and participate in the discussion.
The experienced panel includes:
- Louise Milligan, Assistant Dean (Special Projects), Faculty of Science; Associate Professor, Department of Biology
- Aara Suksi, Associate Professor, Department of Classical Studies
- Brent Sinclair, Associate Professor, Department of Biology
- Andrew Walsh, Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology
