JULY 30, 2016        8:45 A.M. – 4:30 P.M.      HYATT REGENCY, LOUISVILLE, KY

Participants attending the Symposium will be better prepared to:

•    Transition to college/university teaching responsibilities.
•    Explore essential expectations for a beginning professor.
•    Analyze cultural norms of a new department and university.
•    Apply research-based organizational lenses to real-life experiences.
•    Expand scholarship, presentation, and publication opportunities, assisted by a national network of content experts and an experienced ATE mentor in a similar area of specialization.

Full-time college/university faculty members entering years 1-3 are eligible to enroll.  A registration fee of $50 may be paid by contacting the ATE office.  Symposium registration carries a reduced registration fee for the summer ATE conference, July 30 – August 2, 2016.  

There are three ways for ATE members to be involved:

1.  Deans and Chairs of Education Units Are Encouraged to Register Their Beginning Faculty Members

Assisting beginning faculty members in the initial years of a college or university career is a sound investment.  ATE Symposium participation provides resources, professional lenses for problem-solving, and instant access to content experts, prepared mentors, and national networking opportunities. Click here for a one-page flyer that may be copied, posted, and shared with colleagues.

2.   Share Your Experiences as an Education Professor

Your responses to this short survey will be used to design the symposium by enriching case studies and topical sessions with experiences of ATE members who have successfully navigated the initial years of a full-time position as an Education professor.  Click here to go to the survey.

3.   Be a Mentor to New Professors

Mentors and mentees will be matched as closely as possible based on the mentee’s professorial position. Mentors will meet their mentee(s) at the summer conference (preferred - or virtually if unable to attend). If you would like to be an ATE Induction Mentor for a beginning professor, please email Mary Selke (mjselke@aol.com). In your email message, please include: (a) your name, current position, email, and phone, and (b) your areas – such as elementary education, educational administration, etc. – of comfort to mentor an ATE Induction Symposium participant.

IMPORTANT: If you wish to register online for the Symposium by itself and you don't want to take advantage of the reduced rate for the entire Summer Conference, scroll down on the registration form to the tab marked "Clear Payment Selections" (above payment) and this will allow you to register for the Symposium by itself.
