    We will meet tomorrow, regular time and place. This is the last official meeting for the semester. I’m interested in last week’s week class (web site), everyone’s summer plans, etc. Adania’s students are welcome, as below.

    This Wednesday’s class will be led by Claudia–on developing your personal/professional web sites. Please come ready to work with your computers.  I will be in Raleigh NC on a tour of the museum there (for the TESI planning), and now it turns out I will likely not be available for SKYPE. Jeanette will have the key to the room.

    • @cgrant can you still provide an option to join the class remotely? I have a virus and think it is best not to get others sick. However, I would still like to get the information from the session. Also, you noted you would send us some information to allow us to prep for the session, looking forward to it? Thanks!

    Meeting regular time today. Catch-up unless someone has something planned. Bruce

    What would it take for an avalanche of people testing the new eMuseum, soon? (see above, very exciting)?

    For whomever is available, I will meet you today (Wednesday) at 11 am (end before noon) out in the museum plaza downstairs from the reception desk. We will either stay outside, or find a room to meet. Sorry for the confusion. Hope to see some/most of you then, Bruce

    Paleo-tutorial meeting update

    There is a museum grad student lunch now scheduled for noon this Wednesday (to talk about the Museum Ed candidates). Lets meet, therefore from 11 to noon (place TBD) instead of our normal time. That will give you the opportunity to talk about things in general, including thoughts about the RFP, if you are interested. See you then, hopefully. Bruce

    The FOSSIL Project solicits proposals that promote the mission and activities of this NSF funded project.

The proposed work must be completed before 15 August 2019. Budgets are primarily intended to fund participant support (travel, lodging, and registration), although some funds (up to $1,000) are available for materials and supplies. UF students and postdocs in paleontology and education are eligible to apply. Applicants must commit to lead and manage the program, including doing travel paperwork and other arrangements. Funding recipients must join myFOSSIL and utilize the website and/or app to promote and share updates on their project.

     

    The proposal will include (single spaced, 12-point font):

    1. Cover page (1 page total)

    Title

    Project team

    Project Summary

    1. Project Description (1-3 pages)

    Including goals, plan of activities, project management, outcomes and deliverables,

    dissemination plan, and evaluation

    Tomorrow (2/13) we will have our P-T at the regular time, 11:45. I need to find out who has not yet received the Mitchell Hope Award from the SW Florida Fossil Society. To be eligible, you cannot have received the award before. Top priority is for a UF student doing research on Florida fossils.

    I will also talk with you about a funding opportunity from the FOSSIL project.
