Award-Winning Faculty Series: Multiple Modalities and Top Hat: Mixing methods for learning (Shannon Hostetter)
Shannon Hostetter, Associate Professor, Veterinary Pathology, Early Achievement in Teaching awardee, shares how she has blended lecture and case-based learning in her classroom so students can choose the modality that is most effective for them.
The Office for Responsible Research, Office of the Attending Veterinarian and Laboratory Animal Resources are offering software training for researchers who submit IACUC or IBC protocols. Participants will learn how to navigate the new electronic protocol submission system, a-tune. Training topics will include creating and submitting a protocol, and, for animal users of LAR, how to order animals and manage animal records.
Learn the basics about post-award actions and the most frequently asked questions. We'll talk about how to request a PI change, who can submit a no-cost extension request, who really needs to sign a revised Goldsheet, and other useful information about budgeting and managing award changes. Our goal is to help you learn how to save time and navigate these processes quickly and efficiently.
