This Lunch and Learn will be hosted by the Grants and Government Research Contracts (GGRC) group of the Office of Research. The purpose of the session is to introduce members of the GGRC group as well as their area of specialization, and outline the services we provide. Further, information will be presented on the process of submitting grant and government contract applications, along with general tips for writing a successful grant proposal. The 30 minute presentation will be followed by a question and answer period for general questions as well as the opportunity to breakout into groups to ask specific questions about submissions to the Tri-Councils (i.e. NSERC, CIHR, and SSHRC) or other sponsors.
Handouts will be provided that cover upcoming deadlines, suggested dates of submission of proposals to the Office of Research, and other useful resources to help you prepare for the fall grant cycle.

Tenure and promotion are critical milestones in a faculty member's career. You need to collect evidence and document your successes in research, teaching, and service for various individuals and committees to assess. Although many faculty are well prepared to document their research and even service, evidence of good teaching can be more difficult to provide. At this session, you will hear the experiences of two recently tenured faculty members regarding documenting their teaching, as well as the experiences of one Dean in reviewing tenure files. You will also learn about best practices used at other institutions - primarily the teaching dossier - for you to use or adapt in relation to the criteria identified by your Department Chair or School Director. There will be time for questions throughout the session.
Join us for lunch and a chance to find out how others have been successful at documenting their teaching as part of being granted tenure at Waterloo, and network with your colleagues to help build a community that can help support you to your successful tenure application and beyond.
Please REGISTER no later than Friday, March 18, 2012.
