I have grown in my field when I have started my job as a graduate assistant in Iowa state university, I have to get my network in my field and work
There are weekly academic seminars. The speakers are invited from all over the world--all top researchers in my area.
There are lots of opportunities to attend optional PD meetings, but not much beyond that.
There are many teaching and learning seminars provided through CELT (Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching). My department also provides me with professional development funding for conference travel, books, etc.
The university has many options for training events and leadership positions. Encouragement to network is based on your supervisor.
there is no benefits for part time workers
They do a great job of preparing you for real life. Very high standard for classes.
Depends on who your department head is or boss, but there are plenty of options and a budget always set aside for employee dev.
I was able to help students understand concepts in a better manner and help them excel in the course:MS Excel and MS Access
Is selective based on budgets. If the Iowa Legislature is having a conservative year, you won't get professional development funds
