NotesIconFaculty development workshops UNCG’s Communication Across the Curriculum (CAC) program will host two faculty development workshops on Monday, June 6. “Incorporating Informal Writing into Your Course” and “Speaking to Learn: Learning to Speak,” presented by the directors of the University Writing Center and University Speaking Center, will offer interested faculty meaningful ways to infuse their courses with writing and speaking. Each workshop will be held in 21 McIver Building (in the McIver Underground), with the writing workshop from 9:30 a.m.-noon, and the speaking workshop from 1-3:30 p.m. Seating is limited, and faculty members registered for either workshop will receive a $100 honorarium. To register, and for more information, visit the CAC Faculty Development workshop page at http://www.uncg.edu/cac/faculty_resources/workshops.html.

Enhanced Budget Central web site If you have visited the university’s Budget web page in the past days, you likely noticed some changes. A line of descriptive copy has been added for each post, to provide context for the reader, says Mike Tarrant. This site provides a great way for all members of the UNCG community to stay informed about budget matters, whether they are away from campus or on campus. Sign up for the listserv at that site to receive posts the moment they are published on the site.

2011 UNCG Research magazine hot off the presses If you have not read a printed copy, a pdf can be viewed at http://www.uncg.edu/rsh/pdfs/UNCGresearch_2011E.pdf. This pdf is posted on the Office of Reseach and Economic Development web site.

Golf lessons Jan Kiefer joins Campus Recreation again this year to share her golfing experience with us. She will be teaching beginner (Get Golf Ready) and intermediate classes over two sessions running from May 31-July 25. You will get personalized one-on-one attention due to the small class size and make new friends as well. Classes will be at the UNCG Golf Practice Facility, north of the Student Recreation Center. UNCG affiliated members (student, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni) and guests are permitted to register for golf classes. The schedule of classes, descriptions of the different levels of classes and the registration form are at http://campusrec.uncg.edu/golf_lessons2011/golflessons2011.html
