University of Minnesota Bush Foundation Grant Research Project Profiles
Sungur discussed the project profile document for faculty participating in the Bush Grant prepared by MGT. He noted that much of this information exists on the website; Pederson/Sungur will prepare the document for each project. Sungur said Project participants would be asked to review the document and include additional information if needed. Members agreed to post the document to Sharepoint and to integrate responses into the reflection log.
ELED 3102 Course Questionnaire
Solvie discussed the questionnaire (COLBS, generic on-line) she gave her students mid semester, tracking the four learning styles. Members discussed sending a form to project participants on learning styles they focused on, and if they will participate this semester.
