Do you sometimes get stumped in the classroom? Do you feel like you aren’t reaching your students, even though you are giving it your best shot? This quick workshop will focus on some of the most effective teaching strategies you can use – all based on research, and all practiced by our teaching consultants. After the workshop, you can get additional help with your specific course(s) with a Teaching Consultant. This workshop is for all full- and part-time faculty of the University of Pittsburgh only. Lunch will be provided.
Location: Alumni Hall, Room B23
Mentored Career Development Awards (aka K Awards) are the National Institute of Health's primary grant mechanisms for supporting new and mid-career investigators. This workshop explores the range of K Award options available, provides an overview of the K award application process and review criteria, and includes a step-by-step guide to preparing an outstanding and successful application. With the exception of the K99/R00 mechanism, K award applications must be citizens of the U.S. or permanent residents.
Securing research funding in the present economic climate requires more than producing good science - you must communicate transformative objectives within the context of a highly competitive research proposal. This workshop takes the mystery out of grant preparation and provides a pathway for success.
