|Teaching and job initiatives for graduate programs in mathematics|
In the past few years, a number of new initiatives have developed for preparation of graduate students for the professoriate. Among these are TA training programs, college teaching courses, ``professors for the future'' programs, job search and placement services, peer mentoring, and teaching portfolios.
Rishel, who has been involved in many of the above for the mathematics department at Cornell, will outline the design, implementation and rationale for such initiatives.. He will also provide sample materials from his program.
