Morning (AM) classes run Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for the week (12 hours total). Afternoon classes run either Monday-Tuesday (MT), or Wednesday-Thursday (WT) (6 hours each). We will be scheduling during the event times where classes will be able to present their materials during a plenary session.

    There is a common lunch break between 12:00-1:00 pm each day. Meals are provided for those who are staying at the on-campus housing and will be served at the cafeteria next to the dorm location. For those not staying in on-campus housing, here is a list of restaurants where you will be able to order food. Make sure to release students on time so they can get their lunch.

    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


    Instructor Resources



    • 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 ‘’ and inquire if available.


    Assessment Questionaire

    • 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.
