From crafting a concept paper to finding a potential funder, this workshop will provide the basics on getting started in the sometimes confusing world of external grant seeking. Presented by Penn State Harrisburg Associate Dean of Research and Outreach Susannah Gal, a former National Science Foundation program officer, and Lisa Wiedemer, University College Manager of Grant Relations, the hour-long workshop will help participants focus their thinking related to their planned research activities. It will also offer tips for discovering external funding sources and for making the initial approach to program officers, as well as providing other how-tos of initial proposal preparation.
*There are two offerings of this program (the same session will be presented on consecutive days).
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Cindy Decker Raynak (firstname.lastname@example.org).

COIL is a research and development center at Penn State created to build and sustain a culture of innovation, collaboration, and invention focused on improving teaching and learning across (and beyond) the University.
Brad Zdenek, Innovation Strategist for COIL will share ways in which COIL can help advance your innovative research and/or development ideas and lead a discussion of potential new programs or services COIL can offer to help support innovation across the campuses. This is a live presentation that will not be recorded. No registration is required.
Brad will be available after the information session for individual consultations. If interested in an individual consultation, please contact Brad directly at email@example.com to schedule a time.
Blended Learning MOOC 2016
10-week course beginning February 22, 2016
Registration and more information may be found on the SITE event website:
Thinking about creating a blended course? How you will retain the quality of your face-to-face course as you modify your delivery? Can you do it on your own? The answer to these questions might be found by participating in the Blendkit MOOC 2016 from the University of Central Florida.
This spring the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence (SITE) will be coordinating campus cohorts for the Blendkit MOOC, which begins February 22, 2016. These cohorts will enable faculty to participate in the MOOC and discuss the content within our Penn State framework.
There is no fee to participate in the MOOC; however, at the end of the 10-week course, there is an opportunity for participants to earn a certificate by submitting a portfolio for evaluation. There is an $89 fee for this evaluation, and SITE is offering to support this fee for a limited number of participants on a first-come first-served basis. You may also participate in the MOOC and cohorts without submitting a portfolio for evaluation.
