Session Descriptions

Info Booth

If you have any questions or concerns as the Summer Session begins, drop in to an info booth. Staff members will be available to answer questions and offer QUBES support. 

Discussion Bunch

Participants will be placed in small, facilitated discussion groups, which will meet each week during the summer session to discuss the keynotes and other ideas and events at the BIOME. Discussion groups will determine their own meeting time to accommodate group members' schedules. 

Interactive Workshops

Workshops will be 90-minute interactive, hands-on sessions with pre-workshop assignments. While it will be most beneficial to attend synchronously, materials and recordings will be made available to all participants to review asynchronously. Participants can attend as many workshops as their schedule allows, we suggest attending at least two.

Posters & Beyond

Poster materials will be published as open educational resources on QUBES. Participants will review and discuss posters asynchronously throughout the summer session. Poster presenters will attend specific community hours for synchronous discussions. 

Community Hours

Community hours will be offered frequently throughout workshop week. They will include both structured and flexible networking opportunities including Work-in-Progress sessions, synchronous aspects of Posters & Beyond, additional keynote and workshop discussions, breakout rooms for topics of interest, and other facilitated activities. Staff will also be available to answer questions during all community hours. There will be at least two community hours each day. Community hours during Week 3 will focus on the formation of Fall Working Groups.


Fall Working Groups

The fall working groups provide an opportunity to engage with like-minded colleagues and work through the challenges of implementing new ideas in the classroom based on participants’ interests. Working groups will meet every other week from September 6 through November 19.
