Fall Faculty Workshops
Faculty can attend in-person or via Zoom. We will record the workshop for those that can’t attend. Please learn more by selecting a workshop below.
Wednesday, October 6th – Doing Business at Auburn – Misty Glazier
We know that doing business at Auburn can be frustrating at times. This workshop will focus on the roles of the Ag Business Office, the departmental accountants and admins, and central units. We’ll discuss terminology, as well as best practices and procedures. This workshop should give you a better understanding of financial and human resources practices at Auburn.
Wednesday, October 20th – Research – Dr. Art Appel
This workshop will provide an overview of how grant proposals should be developed and routed through our system. This overview will include initiation of a Smartsheet for your proposal, developing budgets (what should faculty think about and how should they approach developing a budget), developing the proposal itself (what makes for good grant writing? What do faculty need to convey to grant writers to get the most impact?), our AAES Grant Programs, and finally why faculty need to have Hatch or Multi-state projects.
Tuesday, November 2nd – Instruction – Dr. Amy Wright
Students rely heavily on Canvas for due dates, scheduling, grades, and assignment reminders. Contacting students through Canvas also appears to be more effective than email. Additionally, online modules and video lecture capture are tools that can be used by faculty to increase flexibility in instruction. Please plan to attend the fall College of Agriculture Instructional Workshop. Experts from the Biggio Center will provide instruction on Canvas, Panopto, Zoom, Online Instruction, and other Biggio Center Resources. This workshop will help you increase your proficiency with these important instructional tools. I look forward to seeing you there.
Wednesday, November 17th – Extension – Dr. Becky Barlow
Extension and Outreach is one of the three land-grant university missions. For Auburn University, this mission is fulfilled in large part by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES). ACES provides research-based educational information and programs across Alabama in the areas of agriculture; economic and community development; family and consumer sciences; forestry, wildlife, and natural resources; 4-H and youth development; and urban affairs. In this workshop you will learn about the unique ACES structure, program teams, the needs assessment process, and how those needs are met through various programs.
