  • Are you a new professor, or thinking of becoming a professor?
  • Are you currently working, or do you want to work in an institution of higher education that is different from the one you came from?
  • Do you feel unprepared for your new position, and the projects that you will have to execute as a part of your academic career?
  • Will you have to design new curricula, programs, or develop new pedagogies in your new job?
  • Do you know how academic change happens?
  • Do you want to become a change agent and have a career or impact?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, don’t despair. Research suggests that most graduate students and new faculty feel unprepared for jobs in academia. Emerging educators often feel lost and unprepared to navigate complex institutional environments.

We are here to help! We are experts in research-based strategies for implementing academic change, and this workshop will help you develop hands-on change leadership skills (e.g., strategic thinking, developing relationships, obtaining buy-in, and many more) in a supportive, dynamic environment with facilitation provided by members of the experience Making Academic Change Happen (MACH) leadership team.

During the immersive two-day workshop, you will work with other participants, all of whom are emerging STEM educators with similar worries and experiences, to get a better understanding of how effective change in academia happens. We will equip you with the best research-based skills that you can implement in a specific academic context to implement effective change, so you can be on the best path to a career of impact! More information of the curriculum is available here.
