There’s no rest for our professors once fall session gets underway. For some, aside from teaching, they’re also attending conferences, presenting, serving on committees and so forth. For Janet Burns, clinical professor and program coordinator for the Career and Technical Education program, she’s had the opportunity to serve for Georgia State University as well as for Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) initiatives.
To start, the senior associate dean for Academic Affairs in the Byrdine F. Lewis School of Nursing and Health invited Burns to serve as a committee member on a unit level non-tenure track (NTT) promotion committee.
“I served as the clinical professor on the committee for a candidate seeking promotion to clinical professor,” she said. “Our committee completed our work by the October 15 deadline.”
She was also the keynote speaker at the New CTAE Teacher Conference held at Middle Georgia State University in Macon.
“I spoke to approximately 300 new CTAE teachers on the topic of Proactive Classroom Management and Safety and Laboratory Management,” she said.
