Participant checklist to prepare for the workshop

To help you get the most out of the workshop, please complete the preparatory activities outlined below by the deadlines listed.

**If you find that your plans to attend the workshop have changed, please let Barb Tewksbury know as soon as possible so that we can offer your spot to someone on the waiting list.

Many of our participants in past workshops have been successful in finding funding to help cover travel and registration for the workshop. Consider asking your advisor, department chair, director of graduate programs, dean, career center and/or the teaching and learning center on campus. Offering to give a seminar or workshop next fall based on the workshop is one way of providing something in return for the support you receive.

By May 4:

  • Register and pay the registration fee for the workshop. The registration fee of $245 (or $200 for NAGT members) includes lodging and meals during the workshop itself. The registration fee for participants who are local (and will not need housing or breakfast) is $145 (or $100 for NAGT members).
  • Decide whether to attend optional sessions on Monday afternoon and/or Thursday morning, and submit the Session Choices form. Session descriptions and times are provided on the workshop program page.
  • Submit the travel information form. See the travel and logistics page for information on travel options and arrival and departure times.

By June 2:

  • Complete the index of learning styles questionnaire AND report your results to us using the online ILS report form. Note - you must complete two forms, because we do not have access to the questionnaire results from NCSU. Optional: read more about the Index of Learning Styles.
  • Complete the Beliefs About Reformed Science Teaching and Learning (BARSTL) Survey
  • Note: June 7 is the last date to withdraw from the workshop and be eligible for a refund. Arrangements have been made on your behalf that have associated real costs (e.g. housing, logistics, materials), and your confirmation has secured a place that has been denied to other interested colleagues. Exceptions for a refund will only be made in cases of extreme personal hardship.
