Session Descriptions:

QEP Impact Open Forum: Any faculty or staff member who was involved in the QEP in any capacity, from being a member of the initial planning committee to implementing a new teaching strategy to helping publicize the program to students, is invited to join our conversation about the how the QEP impacted our students and campus environment. Your feedback about what the QEP meant to you and our students will ensure that the team writing the final report doesn't miss any ways that the process has affected our campus and could help to lay the stage for thinking ahead to the next QEP. Please feel free to arrive late or leave early as your schedule requires.

Creating a Grant Application Budget: Not sure where to start with the budgeting process for your next grant application? Confused about indirect costs and what expenses may be eligible? Thisi workshop will demystify the process and provide you with the information you need to get your application ready for submission.

Introducing Portfolium, a New Canvas ePortfolio Tool: This new tool from the makers of Canvas allows students to make robust digital portfolios to showcase their academic, extracurricular, leadership, and other skills to prospective employers. Seamless integration with Canvas means that students can easily add course projects and students can take their portfolios with them after graduation to help with their job search and professional networking.
