The SPIRE Program provides specific opportunities for scholars to participate in professional development workshops. Often held on or near the UNC-Chapel Hill campus, workshops cover topics such as pedagogy, negotiation, job interview strategies, mentoring, collaboration, diversity and ethics.

Examples of workshops include:

  • Effective College Teaching (Richard Felder and Rebecca Brent)
  • Mentoring Undergraduate Students
  • Developing Classroom-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs)
  • Teaching with Technology
  • Panel discussions with former SPIRE scholars
  • Grant Writing
  • Responsible Conduct of Research
