The Summer Workshop is a unique experience most commonly described by participants as "exhausting but invigorating!"  The workshop launches with a series of hands on sessions about resources, tools, and pedagogical methods.  Throughout the week, speakers share exciting ideas and information, and participants have time to work with colleagues to develop their own materials.  Time is also dedicated to sharing ideas with the larger group to get feedback and new insights. Workshop activities run from 8:30 am to late in the evening. Participants leave with new resources, tools and new collegial connections. The workshop starts online prior to the workshop, and groups will have the opportunity to continue to work together in the QUBES space after the workshop.

Our community establishes a room that we designate Cafe Bio where you will find snacks, materials, staff and colleagues that you can feel to drop in to anytime. This room is also where announcements to others can be placed, and you can coordinate dinner on your own and other logistics.
