Third annual Research Sprints now accepting applications

Thursday, March 29, 2018

LAWRENCE — KU Libraries will host the third annual Research Sprints May 14-18. During this weeklong effort, faculty members will work with a team of libraries faculty and staff on a specific goal related to their research and teaching projects. 

Interested participants should submit a proposal by 5 p.m. Thursday, April 5.  

Whether creating a new course, applying for a research grant or tackling a research project, Research Sprints are a great way for faculty to accomplish their goals. Examples of previous Research Sprints include course redesign and development, systematic reviews and creation of open educational resources.  
Learn more and submit your application at lib.ku.edu/research-sprints. The 2018 Research Sprints will be held at Watson Library. For questions, please contact Tami Albin at albin@ku.edu.
