Have You Seen…?

Posted on December 8, 2011 in Career Center, Graduate School

Have you seen the blog for the Graduate Career Center yet? The blog contains a number of great posts and links about all things job-search related, from available postings to resume and CV tips to preparing for that inevitable interview, from what to wear to what kinds of questions to expect.

Give it a quick look – yesterday featured a great posting about the growth of social media in available job postings.

Meaningful Teaching Experiences: Partnering with the Community

Posted on December 5, 2011 in Kaneb Center

Last week, the Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning hosted a panel focused on information for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty, on the importance of community-based teaching (as well as a brief definition of community-based teaching, learning and research).  The panelists included Dr. Connie Mick of the Center for Social Concerns, Ph.D. Candidate Kasey Swanke from Political Science representing the community-based Writing and Rhetoric course for freshman students, and Dr. Thomas Loughran of Physics representing the Notre Dame extended Research Community.  They shared information, opinions and experience regarding this topic. 

If you were unable to attend but are interested and/or have questions regarding community-based teaching opportunities, feel free to visit the Center for Social Concerns for community wide opportunities or specifically http://www.michianastem.org/ for the latest information on K-12 STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) opportunities.
