First, THANK YOU for agreeing to serve as a valued member of the faculty of the University of Scouting. Your subject matter expertise, experience as a trainer, and your enthusiasm are each critical to the success of our program.

 

At your earliest convenience, please register online for UoS. As part of your registration, please actually register for the class or classes you are teaching. If you are sharing teaching responsibilities with another leader, BOTH of you should register for the class(es). Note: during each class period registration, there is a choice for "Faculty or Staff"; if you are teaching in any period - do not select ""Faculty or Staff". Do select and register for each class you are teaching.

 

When you aren't teaching a class, you are welcome, indeed - encouraged - to register for classes as a participant.

 

Contact your Dean, ASAP, for any special requirements you have for your class, such as special electronic equipment, internet access, extra desk or floor space, or a special out of doors setting. 

 

In general, you should assume that all indoor classrooms will be equipped with a computer projector and screen. If you have a presentation or video to show as part of your class, you should plan to provide your own laptop computer. Again, contact your Dean, ASAP, if you cannot provide your own laptop.

 

Also, it would be EXTREMELY HELPFUL if you could bring your own video cables; all projectors in the school use an HDMI connection. While we cannot guarantee that your cables will work in all classrooms, bringing your own cables increases the chances that your technology will work. Our crack IT staff will have a limited number of extra HDMI cables. AND to be (fully) prepared, please bring a copy of your presentation on a USB flash drive. That way, if your laptop doesn't work or doesn't communicate with the projector, we will locate a spare laptop for your use.

 

On the day of the event (Saturday, March 17, 2018), please check-in. There will be a separate faculty/staff check-in area at the rear of the cafeteria at 7:30 AM. At check-in, you will pick up your room assignments, class attendance lists, as well as your own registration confirmation for all classes you registered for (including the classes you are teaching). If you are teaching a required course, we will have pre-printed "Trained" cards for you to distribute to your participants.

 

And for all required courses, the UoS Registrar will ensure class attendance lists are recorded in ScoutNet. So, if there are any changes (adds or drops) from the class list you picked up when you checked in, please give it, or better yet, email a photo of it to the registrar.

 

Please don't hesitate to contact any member of the staff with questions or concerns.

 

Once again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for serving as a member of the Faculty for UoS. You are making a difference.
