Living Lab 3rd Year Fellows

Use this DOC to sign up to be a workshop facilitator. Each Fellow is asked to provide a 3-4 minute testimonial during one of the seminar in the spring of 2014 about how the grant activities have informed their teaching and learning practices. The facilitators will lead a 15 minute discussion of the  reading assigned for that workshop. In lieu of Facilitating a workshop I am also looking for assistance with developing (adding a bibliography, connecting to other sites, stimulating conversation…) the Associate Fellows website. To sign up for a workshop or to assist with the OpenLab website please add your name next to “TYF Facilitator” (please no more than four facilitators to a workshop)
