Stay tuned for more information from the COACHE task force coming in early January.

FEB05Evolving your Career: Managing TransitionsFEBRUARY 05 2016, 10:00am TBA, TBA
When: 02/05/2016 at 10:00am - 11:30am.

The academic world poses career challenges and transitions for faculty and administrators alike. Many transitions are imposed rather than self-directed. The ability to be highly career self-directed is the focus of this workshop. Participants will create a customized career guide through exercises that lay a blueprint for today and beyond.

Regardless of where you are in your career journey this workshop will show you how to plan for and manage opportunities and obstacles via career mapping, goal setting, decision making, and selecting mentors/advisors.

About the presenter: Ginny Hronek brings many years of experience in public service, higher ed, faculty development, training and coaching. Her work has been domestic and international. Ginny has offered perspective and advice on radio, television and written for newspapers and periodicals and been a keynote speaker for several conferences.

FEB2621st Century Scholarship Unlocked: Open AccessFEBRUARY 26 2016, 3:30pm WAL - Wallace (05), 1st Floor Community Area
When: 02/26/2016 at 3:30pm - 5:00pm.

21st Century Scholarship Unlocked:  Open Access

The open access movement (OA) has been gaining momentum for a number of years, but what does it mean for academic scholarship? As traditional publishers struggle to retain their relevancy in an increasingly web-based environment, scholars have found legitimate open access venues to improve the dissemination of their research and scholarship, increase recognition, accommodate new interdisciplinary works, and add to the world-wide body of knowledge in a timely manner, while continuing to uphold the peer-review process.

Come and enjoy light refreshments in an informal setting (individual demonstration tables) as you mingle with faculty and staff from RIT and other institutions who have published journals, conference proceedings, and textbooks on open access platforms. Learn more about open access, the support provided by the Wallace Center, and how many of your articles and papers currently published in print journals and proceedings can also be made available via open access. 

Drop in anytime during the event and join your colleagues to view what they have accomplished with open access initiatives, and how OA may benefit your own scholarship in the 21st century!
