Professional Development / Workshops
9.) Save the Date: Leonard Cassuto lecture on ‘The Academic Job Market’
3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.; reception to follow 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Nov. 14 Room 139, Shumaker Building, Belknap Campus
Free. Open to all faculty and students
The academic job market is a monolith that looms over the lives of most graduate students, but part of the reason it’s so imposing is because it seems so inscrutable and impenetrable. Higher education scholar and journalist Leonard Cassuto will explain the role of the market in academic culture of our time and what it takes for graduate students to search for jobs with informed confidence.
Additional Information: Get more information and RSVP.

10.) PLAN Workshop: Teaching Students Research and Information Literacy Skills
2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Oct. 3 Room W102, Ekstrom Library
A variety of fields have identified “literacies” for their practitioners and students. You may have heard of computer literacy, digital literacy, multimedia literacy, or even scientific or numerical literacy. This session will discuss the current scholarship and research practices on student and faculty information literacy and outline how research instruction can be scaffolded to provide a more productive experience for students.
Additional Information: Graduate students can learn more and register on PLAN's website.

11.) Graduate Students: Did you know PLAN offers social events just for you?
The PLAN is a framework for understanding and addressing the professional development needs of graduate students. But professional development isn’t all about school—it’s also about work-life balance and finding a way to sometimes have fun. Check out the social events suggested for graduate students on our website, including an upcoming ghost tour for graduate students and their guests, and connect with colleagues from across the university on the SIGS Facebook page.
Additional Information: PLAN. Facebook.

12.) Digging for Neanderthals
Noon Oct. 3 University Club, Belknap Campus
$14 per person; $7 per student
The College of Arts and Sciences presents monthly lunch and lecture series “Meet the Professor.” Jonathan Haws, anthropology professor, has been investigating the replacement of Neanderthals by anatomically modern humans on the Iberian Peninsula where Neanderthals held on for several thousand years later than in the rest of Eurasia.
