CTE: Power Lunch for Columbia Tenure-Track Faculty: Teaching and Research in Tenure and Promotion*

Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511
Feb 10, 2012 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM
Audrey Korsgaard, Past-Chair, University Committee on Tenure and Promotion

Jim Burch, Associate Professor, Epidemiology and Biostatistics

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 Audrey Korsgaard, past UCTP Chair, and Jim Burch, 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 Wednesday, February 8, 2012 online at
