CeMaST hosts the Early Career Learning Community (ECLC) that supports pre-tenure faculty in developing the skills to be a teacher-scholar at ISU. We explore high-impact teaching practices and building the skills for assembling competitive funding proposals to the National Science Foundation.
During the fall 2020 semester, the ECLC is meeting the second and fourth Wednesdays each month at 10am. We have a ReggieNet page where all materials are shared with participants and where we post videos of guest speakers. Guest speakers are invited based on community members' interest and needs. Topics include:
The ECLC is open to any pre-tenure faculty member whose research can be funded by any of NSF's Directorates. New faculty are encouraged to participate, even if they do not plan to submit any funding proposals during their first year. A mass invitation is sent to new faculty members at the beginning of each fall semester, although an interested faculty member can be added to our ReggieNet page at any time by simply completing the ECLC Interest Form.
