ISA created its "Career Course" program to provide opportunities for conference participants to further develop their research and pedagogical skills in a variety of areas. The topics for these courses differ by year and are chosen by ISA's Professional Development Committee based upon submissions from ISA participants. The courses, which are a half-day long, are limited to 30-40 participants. Any person who has registered to attend the Annual Convention can participate in a Career Course for a nominal $25 fee.
Q. When do these take place?
The courses are each four hours long. All take place during the normal convention period, so you don't need to come early or stay late for the conference.
Q. What if I have a panel when a course meets?
Unfortunately Career Course times cannot be changed. Thus, please check your schedule prior to registration to ensure that you don't have a panel, or other commitment that conflicts with the course.
Q. How much does this cost?
Each course costs $25. Participants must also be registered for the Annual Convention. Please note that this fee is non-refundable.
Q. Can I sign up for more than one?
Sure, as long as there's room in your schedule and the course has not yet filled!
Q. What if I cannot enroll in a Career Course even though I want to?
Career Course registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in attending a course that is already at enrollment capacity, please contact Kristy Belton (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be placed on the course's wait-list. You will then be notified should a space become available.
Registration for our 2020 Career Courses is open through the main convention registration area.
(If you've already registered for Honolulu 2020, and you'd like to add a career course, you can do so here.)
