Acceptance notices for the 2016 AECT convention have been sent out. If you were accepted to present and would like travel funding, please send me an email ASAP. Once we know how many students need support, we can better determine our budget allocation. Congratulations to those presenting!

FYI for anyone taking EDPR 8562 this summer, the textbook is listed at TBD but I emailed Dr. Nordstrom and she said the text is Marshall and Rossman Designing Qualitative research, 2016.

Dear Students,

If you have not already, please register for your summer courses today.

Summer courses with low enrollment are at risk of being cancelled. Because we use the cohort model, we know how many students should be in our courses and we know they should all be full. It causes a lot of additional paperwork and back and forth with administration to keep a course open on the promise that we have students planning to enroll, but have not yet done so.

Follow the course rotation and please enroll in your required courses. If you have questions or concerns, reach out to your advisor.

I am looking forward to seeing those of you that will be joining us for lunch with faculty candidate, Dr. Betul Czerkawski, today. If you are available, it is not too late.

We will have two additional IDT Faculty candidates on campus next week. Dr. Betul Czerkawski will be with us on Wednesday, May 4th, and Dr. Andrew Tawfik will be with us on Thursday, May 5th.

We will meet in the IDT Studio (Ball 320) at 12pm sharp and walk over to the Tiger Den. The committee will pay for your lunch, then we will leave you with the candidate.

Also, the candidate will give a presentation about her research at 10:10 and one about her teaching at 11:15. You are invited to attend those as well.

Registration for summer is in full swing. Please take a minute and register for your summer courses. Our administration is looking at course enrollment to determine which classes will "make". If you have any questions about the courses you should be in, need a PIN cleared, or a permit issued, please reach out to your advisor. 

If you are a state employee waiting on the fee waiver deadline to pass, this note does not apply to you.
