What is Haury Program up to this Fall?
In the past two years, the Haury Program has begun hosting workshops in response to feedback from applicants, awardees and staff. This fall we’re hosting three workshops and starting to plan for the first one in 2019.
September 2018: Story Telling Workshop
How you tell your stories can be critical to making an impact. Six awardee teams and Haury Program staff participated in the Story Telling workshop facilitated by Creative Narrations (creativenarrations.net). Jen Nowicki Clark and Molly McCloy helped 21 participants hone their personal project stories for sharing with colleagues, the public and funders.
October 2018: Evaluation Workshop
The University of Arizona STEM Center facilitated a workshop that provided the basics of project evaluation and tips about how Haury Program projects illustrate change brought about by their work. 16 participants attended.
November 2018: Partnering (II) Workshop
Partnering is hard! Last year we hosted a partnering workshop primarily for the University of Arizona half of seed grant and challenge grant partnerships. This year our UA College of Public Health partners on this effort will work with full teams to strengthen partnerships for all university-community work on Haury Program projects.
February 2019: Alan Alda Center Workshop
The Haury Program and the UA Division of Agriculture, Life and Veterinary Sciences, and Cooperative Extension (ALVSCE) sponsored two Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science workshops. Other sponsors included the College of Science, the Institute of the Environment, Laboratory for Tree Ring Research and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. It’s a great investment for UA in its students, faculty, and staff. Learn more about it here.
Planning ahead we expect to continue to host these workshops again as well as others such as one on project management. Look for announcements of upcoming workshops on our website and on our Facebook page. And let us know about other ideas for workshops you might have!
