PROF-it: Preparation for the Professoriate Seminar

Public Speaking:  Teaching a Class

Students who are interested in being nominated for the UMBC/CCBC $2000 Teaching Fellows program should be participating in the Blackboard Community group for PROF-it.  If you are not on the list, please speak to Dr. Judith Pollack at Friday’s seminar.  You can also join the group on your own by going to Blackboard, clicking “Communities”, and typing “PROF-it” into the  “Organization Search” box in the left column.

You may attend the seminar regardless of your interest in the CCBC program. You do not have to be a TA to attend. Postdocs are welcome to attend.
