Speaking with Prof. Laurel Goj a career consultant with
the ACS today I learned several things about training
programs and websites to help prepare graduate students
and post docs for academic careers.

Laurel indicated that a number of leading universities will
already offer students courses and programs to help them
do well early in their careers.  But she indicated that there
is a new strong initiative called Project Kaleidoscope
preparing the faculty of the 21st century for enhanced
STEM teaching and learning.

AACU
supports this program and offers publications
that Laurel said can be helpful for preparing for academic
careers.
