2019 Developing Multidisciplinary Leaders Workshop
The purpose of the workshop is to help post-tenure or equivalent professionals progress in their careers. The goal of the workshop is to develop multidisciplinary leaders from the AAEA membership who are grounded in applied economics but who are interested in working across disciplines to lead effective teams of scholars. Research and teaching are the core areas of the workshop.
The workshop will bring in panels of applied economists and non-economists, who have worked with applied economists, to explore opportunities and challenges of fostering multidisciplinary teams. One significant topic for discussion is applying for large, multidisciplinary research grants from USDA, NSF, NIH and foundations.
The teaching component will center on developing multidisciplinary, team-taught courses and extension programs. The sessions will cover pedagogy and collaborative aspects of teaching and extension across disciplines. This component will also use active learning to help members develop courses and/or programs.
Mid-Career Mentoring Workshop to be held at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University.
Primary audience is mid-career professionals – both nearly and newly tenured faculty and individuals with other positions are similar experience, e.g., government agencies.
