1st Annual Science Policy Symposium hosted by the Science Policy Initative at UVa.
What is a reflective teaching statement and what makes one effective? In this third part of the Academic Job Search Series, facilitators from the Center for Teaching Excellence will offer participants the opportunity to evaluate sample teaching statements from a variety of sources, to examine the conventions of teaching statements across disciplines, and to begin to articulate their own teaching philosophy.
This workshop will provide an overview of the academic interviewing process and tips for how to be successful. Time wil be reserved for participants to practice interviewing skills with peers and program participants.

Fair will be held from 12:00-3:00 pm in Newcomb Hall.
Whether you're networking, interviewing for a job, or just having a conversation at a party, it is essential to have an "elevator pitch" to describe your dissertation work. Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an exercise that helps graduate students develop the necessary communication skills to effectively explain their scholarship in a clear and succinct way so that all people, from field-specialist to the lay-person, can understand the topic and importance of their work. Plus, it comes with the opportunity to win prizes!
