Postdocs at Princeton University
Postdoctoral research associates and fellows are appointed through the Office of the Dean of the Faculty. Though appointed through the Office of the Dean of Faculty, we are not faculty but academic professionals. Rules corresponding to the different types of postdoc appointments can be found on this Policies & Procedures website. In coordinating your appointment at Princeton, your primary contact will be your supervising professor and her departmental administrative staff, however, questions regarding benefits can be addressed by the Office of Human Resources.
The Princeton Postdoctoral Council (PDC) aims to serve Postdoctoral Fellows, Postdoctoral Scholars and Research Associates at Princeton University by aiding in their professional development, fostering a sense of community and identity, and enhancing the quality of the postdoctoral experience.
We have two mailing lists, which you can join by logging in to the Princeton listserv service.
We send out events and other announcements through our PDC-social mailing list.
We also have the Ask A Postdoc (ASAP) mailing list that you can use to ask fellow postdocs questions about housing, funding, or anything else.
Postdoc Events at McGraw Center
This session will provide an overview of the resources to faculty in designing and implementing digital, multimedia assignments, including online exhibitions, annotations, timelines, mapping, podcasting, visualization, and polling/classroom response tools. Participants will be introduced to the McGraw Center Toolkit, an online directory of recommended tools for use in digital assignments, to the Canvas Field Guide, a resource of information about digital tools available through the Canvas learning management system, and to the Digital Assignment Guide, an online resource with information about adding a digital assignment to your course with examples of past projects, rubrics and design considerations. Such assignments can encourage collaborative work, exploring multiple literacies, writing for public audiences, and learning to effectively present critical, creative, and community-engaged scholarship. These non-technical outcomes often form the basis of and motivation for the development of digital assignments.
The session will be led by Ben Johnston, Senior Educational Technologist in the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.
This session does not count for the Teaching Transcript program.
