This is a VERY busy time of the semester in academia and the academic year with many deadlines but also celebrations.
Nevertheless, when the invitation came from Professor Ana Muriel of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at UMass Amherst to take part in a Faculty Teaching Panel, I had to say, "Yes!"
Because where would we be without our students?!
Do join us this afternoon, if you can (and I will try to write up some highlights on this blog afterwards for those who can;t make it) , for an event that I am sure will be very informative and interesting for all those grad students who are interested in pursuing an academic career and will be teaching soon, if they are not already. We can learn so much from one another.
