Teaching, Scholarship, and Service:
Professional Development for Academic Support Professionals
November 8, 2013
9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
University of San Diego School of Law, San Diego, California
Spend a day sharing with and learning from your colleagues! We spend most of our year dedicating ourselves to the needs of our students, our school, and our communities. It is time to take a day just for us! The West Coast Consortium of Academic Support Professionals invites you to attend just such a day in sunny San Diego at the beautiful campus of the University of San Diego School of Law.
PART 1 - Scholarship: Are you looking for feedback on a paper in progress? Would you like suggestions on how to strengthen an almost done piece of scholarship? Would you like to present a paper to a group of supportive colleagues and participate in a critique? We will look at best practices in developing scholarship, the steps necessary to finalize and submit papers for publication, and discuss further strengthening the ASP area of scholarship.
PART 2 – Teaching and Service: Would you like to reinvigorate your ASP program? Looking to get a few more ideas for bolstering presentations in the classroom? We will look at innovative teaching methods, new ideas for ASP programming and discuss how you can best be of service to your students, school and ASP community. We welcome your ideas if you have specific areas you would like to discuss.
WE NEED YOU! If you would like to present a work in progress during Part 1 or be a presenter for Part 2, please email a summary of your paper or presentation idea along with your contact information and a list of your past presentations to Lisa Young at firstname.lastname@example.org. The summary should be no more than 250 words and must be submitted no later than Friday, October 11th for full consideration.
While WCCASP is a regional subgroup, we welcome any and all from around the country to join us!
