There is just no more time to put this off!

This is a 3-day guided agenda program, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. each day, to convert quarter courses to semester courses. There will be short presentations about best practices, optional technology presentations, and also plenty of time to work on your own courses. We can accommodate up to 15 participants; please ensure that you can stay the whole day each day. A stipend of $100 per day is available. We ask that you do not register if you have already participated in a previous Semester Conversion Camp. Open to all faculty.
