CTL Open Session: Migrating your Original Oncourse tests to the New Tests and Surveys
The Original Test and Survey tool in Oncourse is being retired August 16. To minimize the impact of issues related to exporting and importing tests, instructors who are using the Original Test and Survey tool are urged to migrate their assessments well before the retirement date. The CTL is offering open migration help sessions throughout the summer. Faculty are invited to simply show up and walk in to these sessions but are encouraged to register in advance. Consultants will be available to answer your questions and assist you in the process.
Register for any of the dates below at the CTL Event Calendar.

Nanotechnology Discovery Summer Camp for High School Students

Register » | Organizer: Center for Research and Learning
The IUPUI Nanotechnology Discovery Academy (INDA) Summer Camp is a week-long day camp (June 11-15, 2012 or June 25-29, 2012) that provides a unique opportunity for high-school students entering their sophomore, junior, and senior years to explore the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology on the IUPUI campus. Nanotechnology concerns the control of matter in the nanometer scale: one nanometer is one billionth of a meter, or 100,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. This cutting-edge field is becoming an essential part of science, engineering, medicine, and many other disciplines. The camp fee ($295) covers all camp materials and supplies, and includes daily lunch and the cost of one IUPUI course credit. Need-based scholarships may be available; housing and transportation unavailable. APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 18, 2012.For questions, contact

Project-Based Learning Institute
June 25-28, 2012
Register and for more information» | Sponsors: IUPUI, University of Indianapolis and Wayne Township School District
The annual Project-Based Learning Institute prepares educators for implementing PBL by immersing them in an authentic PBL environment. Over the course of four days, educators from across the state work together in small content-area groups to develop a project for their classroom. The Institute offers programming for novice, intermediate, and advanced PBL practitioners and administrators in grades K through 16.
The PBL Institute models project-based learning for teachers just as it should be implemented with students. At the outset of the event, participants receive an entry document and learn the vocabulary of PBL. Educators have the opportunity to see and critique successful projects. In small groups, facilitators guide participants through the PBL process as they create projects for their classrooms. Throughout the event, participants can choose to attend workshops and mini-lessons to increase their PBL skills. Workshops cover topics like differentiation, technology, and integrating state academic standards. Media specialists staff the library to provide additional support through research and idea generation. At the conclusion of the event, participants present their projects to other educators to gain authentic feedback.
