May - Week 1

Hello Everyone-
Congratulations on wrapping up the spring semester! FCTL and our partner units across campus are excited to begin the 2013 Faculty Summer Development Conference tomorrow morning bright and early in room 104 of the Classroom One Building. If you’re a registered participant, we look forward to seeing you between 8 and 8:30 for coffee and conversation followed by cohort meetings and an exciting plenary session with scientist-turned-filmmaker, Randy Olson. If you’re not a registered participant, we hope you’ll still consider joining us for events throughout the week. You’ll find the agenda at this URL: http://www.fctl.ucf.edu/Events/SummerConference/2013/summer_conference_2013_agenda.pdf .
Cheers,
Melody
