We are interested in learning about any kind of research, pilot programs, innovative projects, or faculty work happening at your institution in any of the areas listed above. Our goal is to help readers understand the potential impact of these areas and their applications on teaching, learning, or creative inquiry, as well as policy and leadership. Of course, a number of innovative faculty and campuses are already working in some of these areas, and those are the very efforts we want to highlight. Of special interest are any activities that have a significant web presence so that a URL might be included in the report. How to Participate If you know of examples we could include, please use the brief web form at http://go.nmc.org/projects to tell us about them. We ask for a title, a URL, and a one- or two-sentence description; you also will need to select which of the topics your example falls under. The process takes about two minutes. We hope to have your examples by Monday, April 13, but no matter what, we’d love to hear about what you are doing! All we really need is a sentence of description and a URL — we’ll do the rest.
