Professional Development Seminar
goal of the Professional Development Seminar is to give the
participants the best possible preparation for the issues they will
face as faculty members at four-year colleges. This seminar is run by
mathematics faculty with several sessions offered by the Coordinator of
Graduate Student Training and Development for the UNL Graduate College.
Topics include writing grant proposals, navigating service commitments,
strategies for teaching courses outside one√Ę‚‚¨‚„Ęs area of expertise,
tips for incorporating active learning in courses, and time management.
In particular, because we want to give extra emphasis to the issue of
writing grant proposals, participants begin working in this seminar on
proposals to the NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research
