Are you interested in learning more about the ways that your project can leverage BioQUEST and QUBES resources? Apply now to join us for the Spring 2022 Hosting a Project with BioQUEST/QUBES Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN).

Using BioQUEST and QUBES resources to support your STEM Ed reform project is pretty straightforward but there is a learning curve. If you already have a group on QUBES or you are considering starting one please join us for guided experience through the basics of planning, implementing, and sustaining a project community. By the end of this FMN you will have your group set up, understand the basics of how to use a QUBES group to support your project work, and build a vibrant online community. Participants will meet online biweekly to collaborate with and support each other in the process of setting up a functional project space. 

Applications are due January 7, 2022.
