Section NExT

Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) is a professional development program of the MAA. This program is designed to support new college faculty in their teaching, scholarly, and professional activities and to help these new faculty members to get involved in the mathematical community beyond their own institutions. The success of Project NExT on the national level has prompted some MAA sections, including the Illinois section, to organize their own local versions of this program, called Section NExT.

The annual ISMAA Section NExT Program will be held in conjunction with the ISMAA Annual Meeting, this year held virtually on March 12-13, 2021. Anyone within their first four years of teaching mathematics (after finishing a master's or doctoral degree) at any two or four-year college or university in Illinois is eligible, as well as any graduate students at universities in Illinois who are completing their PhD this year and have a position in Illinois for the upcoming academic year. Newly selected ISMAA Section NExT Fellows will have their meeting registration, pre-conference workshop registration, banquet fees, and Friday lunch paid for by the ISMAA for the current and next year's ISMAA Annual Meetings.

The Section NExT Program will begin Friday late morning (March 12, 2021) with a pre-conference meet-n-greet lunch (bring your own lunch). The conference begins at 1pm. The Section NExT program will conclude on the morning of Saturday, March 13 with a round table discussion, preceding the closing address of the ISMAA meeting. The topic of the round table will be determined by the interest of the fellows.
