InTeGrate and QUBES have partnered to run Faculty Mentoring Networks. These online communities are professional development opportunities where participants work collaboratively to discover new teaching materials, pedagogical techniques, and quantitative content.  Participants adapt materials and share their final products on QUBESHub. Below are collections of participant work from the most recent Faculty Mentoring Networks.
