Traveling Teaching Workshops Program
Please use this form to request a facilitator to run a workshop at your institution. You have the option of requesting a half-day or full-day workshop.

Departments/institutions who receive funding agree to the following:
Before the visit, the Department/Institution will fill out a brief questionnaire describing the curriculum and styles of teaching currently used, and what the Department hopes to achieve by the visit.
Before the visit, the Department will make arrangements to invite neighboring institutions and groups to the workshop. Space permitting, participants can also be recruited from related STEM fields.
The Department/Institution/Organization will cover the speaker's local food, accommodation and travel costs, and the costs to photocopy workshop materials.
Following the visit, the Department will submit an
evaluation of the visit
The Department will
submit a report
to the Workshop Coordinator six months after the visit to report on changes stimulated by the workshop.
