Professional Development for Professors

By May 13, 2004

Follow me on:

When I first became a professor, I was struck by the tremendous autonomy afforded faculty. Because no one looks over your shoulder, it's easy to flounder, not knowing what to do or how to manage it all and keep your career afloat. Through trial and error, as well as reading lots of professional development resources for faculty, I've learned how to make it in academia (and I share what I've learned here, at About Graduate School!).

One of my favorite resources is the Tomorrow's Professor Listserv, maintained by Richard M. Reis, of Stanford University. Twice a week emails bring professional development resources to your inbox. Postings cover the nature of academia, preparing for and managing academic careers, teaching and learning, research, and more.

Better yet, all of the postings are archived, so new subscribers can read up on early posts. To subscribe to Tomorrow's Professor, send an email to: Majordomo@lists.stanford.edu with subscribe tomorrows-professor in the body of the email.
