Sometimes Practice Makes Perfect: Cultural Changes in the Training of Anthropologists with Elizabeth Briody
I am proud to announce the American Anthropological Association’s webinar series is returning. As was the case in 2014, we’ll try and alternate between webinars focused on professional and educational development, and webinars exploring more topical issues. As part of National Anthropology Day (week?), the event is complimentary, but you will be required to register here. The event will begin at 2 PM EST, and will include a in-depth Q&A session at the end. Be sure to check your system beforehand, so you’ll be ready to go.
If you are either a faculty member or a student interested in training related to professional anthropological careers, this webinar is for you!
Interest in anthropological practice has never been higher.Students continue to seek greater job market preparation yet many faculty wonder how to help them.We will talk about:
1.Key differences between “traditional” anthropology programs and applied/practicing-oriented programs
2.Commonalities across high performing applied programs
3.Four distinct models of program effectiveness, highlighting the cultures of the University of Memphis, University of Maryland-College Park, Northern Arizona University, and the University of North Texas
4.If you are a faculty member:How do you build a program with a focus on application and practice?
5.If you are a student:How do you choose a program that will work for you?
