Share Your Memories!
If you have photos of VASTA conferences or events, we would love for you to share them with us. VASTA does not have a photographer to take photos for our archives, so we would love to see the conferences or gatherings from your point of view. We would like to highlight events and memories on the front page of the VASTA site and keep them in our archives.
You can share them with us in two ways:
- To upload multiple photos, click-through the link: VASTA DropEvent for Pre-2012 Photos
- Email single photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you put in a subject, it will become the caption for the photo.
Thank you, VASTAns!
Statement of Teaching Philosophy Support Group
One of the great things our members do is try to support one another for self-improvement. VASTA Member, Diane Robinson, saw a need to help people in developing their teaching philosophy statements. For anyone in Academia, this can be a serious undertaking because it is often a part of Tenure & Promotion Materials, so she asked members of our listserv, VASTAvox, if they would like to work with one another in helping one another develop a teaching philosophy. This has grown into the Statement of Teaching Philosophy Support Group.
If you are interested in being a part of these discussions, please contact the Tech Director. You will be added, begin receiving email messages, and have access to VASTA's Google Apps Group.
