Same rooms will be used for AM and PM courses, so after your class please arrange the room back to its original format.
If you have additional needs, please let us know 'email@example.com' and we will try to accommodate your requests.
Equipment and Classroom Outline:
- All projectors are equipped with sound
- Rooms that do not have a projector, but have a TV, are equipped with sound through the TV
- Please bring your own laptop
- You may use blue painters tape and sticky notes on the wall, but please remove them when your class is over
- If you need supplies there is a bookstore on campus located in Ackerman- B Level and Hill Top Shop near De Neve Housing where you can buy supplies. FSCI does not have a budget for these additional items. We may have access to a few flip charts and pads of paper. If you need one of these, please send a note to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ and inquire if available.
We will be using a survey to evaluate each course and the institute as a whole. Individual classes may, of course, prepare a course survey for their individual classes. For your class only, you may send out an additional assessment questionaire a couple of months after the workshop to better understand the impact of the class.
Advance Contact with Participants
- If you wish you may contact students prior to the event, but it is best protocol to use the bcc unless you ask individuals if it is okay to include everyone’s email in the ‘to’ area. Each instructor will be given their course participant list in advance of FSCI.
To be provided prior to the start of FSCI
