Power Lunch for Columbia Faculty: Teaching and Research in Tenure and Promotion Christine Curtis, Vice Provost for Faculty Development Ann Johnson, Associate Professor of History Tuesday, October 13, 2009, 12:15-1:45 p.m. Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511 Description Effective teaching is a core value at the University of South Carolina and is essential for tenure and promotion. New faculty should seek and obtain whatever assistance is needed early on to be effective teachers. However, being a productive scholar as an effective researcher or a creative artist is also essential for tenure and promotion. Balance is, therefore, required. The Center for Teaching Excellence invites new tenure track faculty to join us for lunch, for brief presentations by Vice Provost Christine Curtis and a recently tenured faculty member, and an interactive discussion of mechanisms faculty can use to achieve balance between effective teaching and productive scholarship. Registration is required to participate in this Power Lunch. Please register by October 7th. Follow this link to fill out the online registration form: http://www.sc.edu/cte/power/columbia.
