Activities and Applications
The professional development series is now being hosted by the Office of Organizational Learning and Development. We will be adding sessions on a regular basis so keep checking back for new opportunities.
Participate in an in-depth learning experience with your campus colleagues. Topics vary by semester. Come explore new subjects and meet colleagues from outside your discipline.
Sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Helmsley Charitable Trust, this Institute will bring national teaching experts to UM to share learning strategies that have been shown to improve student understanding and success in STEM courses. Participants will develop an original course module as part of the workshop and be named Academic Education Fellows.
Did you know that the Department of State’s J-1 Exchange Visitor Program provides opportunities not just for students to experience life at UM, but international scholars, researchers, and faculty members as well? In fact, the visiting scholar does not even need to receive employment from UM to be eligible. Contact the International Students & Scholars division of the Global Engagement for more information.
The Conversation U.S. is a non-profit website that aims to share the work of faculty researchers with the public. A number of UM faculty have published pieces with The Conversation, which has connected them to other major news outlets and new professional contacts.
