Daniel Reeve, Rule-Destroyer and College Instructor Coming to the Academic Career Panel
The close student-teacher relationships, the cosy small-town setting, and the occasional campus-wide water fight (okay that may have been a scene from Community).
Still, the life of a college instructor offers a lot of unique benfits and advantages for those interested in pursuing an academic career path. However, gaining entrance to these positions is becoming increasingly difficult—particularly with many colleges becoming universities and subsequently demanding higher academic qualifications.
With a Master’s Degree in Political Science, Daniel Reeve is an exception to the rule. This Camosun College instructor has been working in the field for eight years and though he doesn’t have a PhD, has managed to create opportunities for himself by thinking about course development in fresh ways, learning how to write press releases and watching a lot of TV.
Want to learn more about his story and how he did it? Come to the Academic Career Panel, presented by the Office of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Fellows' Apex Professional Development Program. <HINT: see the image above.>
This panel will also include faculty from SFU, UBC, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and Thompson Rivers University Open Learning. For a complete list of presenter bios please see this post.
