2009-2010 Follow-On Workshops

The Follow-On Workshop Program is designed to bring Cutting Edge workshop results and resources to new audiences, while providing opportunities to develop new Cutting Edge workshop leaders. To integrate these regional workshops into the Cutting Edge program and to maximize the use of existing resources, workshop leaders with successful proposals attend a leadership workshop where they learn about Cutting Edge program goals, design principles, and website tools. The leadership workshop provides an opportunity to work with Cutting Edge PIs to design the workshop, and to work with the Cutting Edge evaluation team to design its evaluation. A $1000 leader stipend is provided to each leader on completion of the proposed regional workshop. However, the regional workshop must be financially self-supporting.
