Additional Info
You’re finishing your first year of teaching. It’s been exciting and gratifying, but some wobbly episodes too. How will you carve out a space to flourish? You’re feeling secure in mid-career, with some accomplishments to be proud of. But what should success really look like? You’re nearing the end of your career, and sometimes apprehensive about the blank slate of retirement. What might it look like to finish well? In Mapping Your Academic Career Gary Burge speaks from decades of teaching, writing and mentoring. Along the way he has experienced and observed the challenges and tensions, the successes and failures of the academic pilgrimage. Now, with discerning wisdom and apt examples, he hosts the conversation he wishes he’d had when he started out as a college professor. Wherever you are in your teaching life, this is a book that will reward reading, reflection and discussion.
