The time for the weekly IGERT meeting was determined:   Tuesdays, 1:30-3:00 pm, beginning Tuesday, September 1, 2015.

Plan to join the meeting in time to be ready for a prompt 1:00 pm start.

Please remember the following expectations/deliverables for September 1st:

--Each team continue finalizing literature searches over the remainder of this week, perhaps into next week, uploading what you have to DB as appropriate, unless another means of posting has been decided upon by the group where Dr. Black may access and assess the progress.  Refine lit selections to produce finalized literature reviews so you are prepared for the Writing Module to begin September 8th.

--All teams who have not made a 10 min max overview presentation of their projects (meaning all groups except Group 3, the group represented by Catherine’s presentation on Monday), should upload their PowerPoints/documents to Dropbox to present on September 1st.

--All Groups:  Assure that SOWs, Gannt Charts, and any other required materials noted in the syllabus are uploaded to DropBox by September 1st.

If there are any obstacles hindering completion of any of these items, please contact Dr. Black preferably by August 28th but definitely before August 31st to discuss means to resolve issues.
