2012 Summer Institute in CSD to be Held at UT-Austin
The 2012 Summer Institute in CSD (SICSD) will be held at the University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin), June 18-29, 2012.
The institute will engage students in lecture-style presentations by experienced scholars in CSD. The content of the lectures will be doctoral-level, not reconfigured BA or MA material. Neither college credit nor continuing education will be awarded.
Participants will attend workshops on topics ranging from responsible conduct of science, research opportunities and grant writing, manuscript preparation and the editorial process, what makes a good presentation, pedagogy and teaching portfolios, post-doctoral fellowships, interviewing for academic positions, the promotion and tenure process, and current issues in CSD.
The institute will also provide opportunities for participants to discuss their own research. These gatherings may range from brainstorming sessions to poster- or platform-type presentations of more complete work. The meetings will be informal and interactive, with ample time for networking.
The participant cost is $590/$1,130 (double/single occupancy), plus the cost of transportation to and from Austin. The registration fee includes both room and board. It is also required that the student's home institution contribute $590 per enrollee.
More details about the Institute and the application form [PDF] are available online at the CAPCSD website in the "Student Resources" section under "Summer Institute."
The deadline is May 18, 2012. For questions, contact Craig Champlin, CAPCSD Vice President for Research and Academic Development, at email@example.com.
