Half-Block Workshop for Faculty on Starting, Re-Starting, and Maintaining Scholarly Projects: A Two-Part Workshop


Cossitt Hall
906 N. Cascade Ave. (Northwest of Worner Campus Center) (map)



This workshop is focused on forming and maintaining faculty support groups to make scholarship part of our lives on the Block Plan. We will also talk about funding possibilities at CC and beyond, how to start and restart research projects, and time-management for our busy lives. We'll consider a number of models for direct, daily, weekly, blockly support and leave the workshop with groups formed and some projects planned. You can come for the whole day, just the morning, or just the afternoon. Please RSVP to Patti Spoelman by January 10, 2013.
