Workshop topics can include:
- teaching, such as class dynamics, evaluation and marking pedagogy, creating a teaching portfolio, designing a course and creating course outlines;
- research, such as preparing grant applications and developing writing strategies;
- dissemination of research, such as making formal presentations and publishing in books and journals, and
- academic job searches, such as preparing a curriculum vitae, preparing a cover letter and giving a job talk.
