Thank you to Dr. Ulrich Mueller for spearheading a SSHRC partnership grant on behalf of several UVic faculty members. At our meeting last week, Dr. Mueller described the types of quantative and qualitative assessments that faculty members will pursue. The grant will be submitted by late November.
With the support of RRU Continuing Education staff, we will be producing rack cards and brochures in the near future to explain the Nature K project to interested partners, funders, and parents.
Enid and I continue to be busy writing grant applications. We are currently working on grant applications for the United Way and Telus. We also had a very exciting meeting with Sean Rodman from the Royal BC Museum to discuss, among other topics, future collaboration between the museum and the Nature K pilot.
A meeting with the curriculum sub committee will be taking place early next week. More details to follow on another post.
Hi there –
Any chance there could be a summer mini-Kindie at RRU? I’ll be teaching at RRU summer 2012 and my daughter will be with me… I’d be happy to get involved helping with logistics!
Thanks for your interest. I am not aware of a summer mini-Kindie program at this point, however, I will certainly mention the idea to the planning team at our December meeting.
