QUBES Participant Support Funds 

We encourage participants to apply for QUBES participant support funds to help defray the cost of registration.  These funds apply only to registration and applicants should apply to other sources of funding for travel.  Recipients of participant support funds are expected to participate in the entire week long workshop. The application for participant support is within the main application.

Future Faculty Program

Four highly motivated future faculty volunteers will be recruited to help with the day to day logistics of the workshop such as signage, registration, posting events to social media sites, daily clean up and set up, etc. in exchange for a registration fee waiver. Participants must cover their own travel expenses. Future faculty volunteers are expected to stay in the dorms unless you have extenuating circumstances. Volunteers are expected to participate in the full workshop.  Contact Nicole Chodkowski at nc526 "at" cornell "dot" edu for more information. Applications now closed

Present your work

There are several opportunities to share what you have been working on and learn more about your colleagues' projects. We invite you to bring a poster, present a session, or bring ideas and resources to the Work in Progress (WIP) session. You may present in multiple formats, but please submit an application for each presentation!

  • Posters: The poster session will be held Sunday, July 14 at 4:00 pm. Posters should be no larger than 3' x 4'. Appropriate poster topics include educational research projects, pedagogical methods, course curricula, modules, reform efforts, discipline based education research projects on any scale, resources, and assessments
  • Sessions: Sessions are hand on introductions to resources and pedagogical approaches, preferably addressing data science skills. Sessions are either two hours or 30 minutes and held throughout the day on Monday, July 15.
  • Work In Progress (WIP): This year we are also offering an opportunity to share your ideas and projects with colleagues for some quick feedback. We are modifying the idea from the Life Discovery Conference's Share Fair which describes this activity as a way for "educators to share teaching ideas and resources at any stage of development to receive peer feedback." The WIP sessions will be held simultaneously with the poster session, Sunday, July 14 at 4:00 pm.
