Scientists Spotlights and Data Nuggets
Applications Due: December 11, 2020
If you want to feature diverse scientists and their data and learn to make podcasts and videos, this is the group for you. Our group has been working this fall and has gathered many resources for the project. You will have access to all our resources and the guidance of people who have thought about this. Participants will create new resources for their courses that feature diverse scientists.
Apply now to join the Spring 2021 Scientists Spotlights and Data Faculty Mentoring Network.
It is important that all participants are able to commit to the full experience. The greatest benefits of these experiences are generated in the interactions with colleagues. Your contributions will be critical to the success of this program.

The virtual kick-off will be held in mid/late-Jan, 2021 (date and time TBD). The FMN will continue online to support the customization and implementation of activities in your course during the Spring 2021 semester.
