Below is the schedule for the pre-workshop activities. Participants should finish all activities in a timely fashion in order to be able to fully benefit from the face-to-face portion of the workshop. Please send any comments to Lori Postner (lori.postner@ncc.edu) and Greg Hislop (hislop@drexel.edu).

NOTE: Many of the activities below could take much more time than the estimate given. If you find yourself going over the time allotment, you may be going deeper than is needed to prepare for POSSE Stage 2. While deeper exploration is welcomed, once you pass the estimated time you should feel free to wrap up the activity, complete the deliverable, and move on.
