In order to help you get the most out of the Accelerating Systemic Change in the STEM Higher Education Planning workshop, we ask that you do several things in advance. These tasks will let other participants learn more about your previous work and they will get you familiarized with the SERCkit Content Management System (CMS).
Here is a list of the preparatory activities and their deadlines.
|Action for Participant||Deadline||Detail|
|Create a SERC account||June 29, 2016||Or login to your existing account. On the left side of your account page, you will have the option to 'Edit your Bio' and 'Add a Photo'. Alternatively, you may email this information to Rory McFadden (email@example.com), who can also answer any questions.|
|Complete Bio and add a photo||June 29, 2016||On the left side of your account page, you will have the option to 'Edit your Bio' and 'Add a Photo'. Alternatively, you may email this information to Rory McFadden , who can also answer any questions.|
|Review your "my interest in ASCN" information||June 29, 2016||On your account page, click on the "untitled" link under the heading "webpages you may edit". After you open the page, it will be called "my interest in ASCN". This page was created from your survey responses. The page is currently private, but will be made live by JUNE 30. It is important to complete this step if you want to edit your survey responses before they are viewable by the workshop participants. See the editing a single page directions for help in editing.|
|Annotate Resources||July 1, 2016||Part of our mission is to develop a set of useful resources for researchers and change agents in this area. We have started such a set from the suggestions conference attendees made on the registration form. Please read through our resource list, add additional suggestions and, most importantly, add to the resource descriptions to indicate how they can be useful and for which audiences.

|Review Working Group Mission||July 1, 2016||Please review the information on your Working Group workspace, which includes a (draft) mission statement, potential outcomes, and key questions to answer.|
|Look through Foundational Resources||July 6, 2016||We have created a list of resources that we will assume attendees are familiar with. Please review these Foundational Resources prior to the meeting.|
