All seminars are held in the CNPRC Seminar Hall from 12:00 – 1:00 PM
(Re)Designing Hybrid or Online Courses
Opportunities for successful online communication have exploded in the last several years, and many instructors are excited to take advantage of these resources in their teaching. One popular method is “hybrid” courses, in which learning activities shift online for reduced face-to-face interaction and increased online interaction. This graduate seminar is primarily geared toward those who are new to the experience of (re)designing a course for hybrid delivery, but graduate students with more experience (or with a goal of blended rather than hybrid delivery) are also welcome to participate and revise their courses.

Responsible Conduct of Research
The UC Davis Research Compliance and Integrity Unit is once again offering a comprehensive research ethics program for graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, staff and NSF funded undergraduate students. This program may also be used to satisfy NIH (http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-10-019.html) and NSF (http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/rcr.jsp) training grant requirements for responsible and ethical conduct of research training programs.
The 60 minute lecture-discussion sessions will be offered at both the Davis and Sacramento campuses. Sessions will consist of a lecture by a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. Participants must attend a minimum of eight sessions in order to meet the federal requirements and to receive a certificate of completion for the Responsible Conduct of Research program.
The Davis and Sacramento Schedule of RCR Sessions are attached as well as on the RCI Webpage (http://www.research.ucdavis.edu/rcr).
