Reinventing Yourself and Staying Relevant

This professional development workshop focuses on the importance of creating a unique niche in your department, which involves remaining flexible with and open to changes in your career trajectory, understanding your department's needs, and effectively integrating yourself into your department as an essential faculty member. Our panelists share their experiences with career-defining professional changes, adjusting to new departmental cultures and expectations, and finding ways to contribute uniquely to their respective departments. They will offer a few concrete (and memorable) suggestions that may help participants navigate similar challenges during their careers at CU. A 20-minute open discussion/Q&A follows.

  • Tammy Fredrickson, Associate Clinical Professor and Director of Audiology Clinical Education, Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences Department
