  4. Questions:
      • Sarah:  Should there be term limits for Fellows (conveners)?
        •  310 consensus: Don’t think there should be limits, mostly due to the community building aspect of having the same people over time. IF there was a limit, at least 2 years. 
        • 210: Think that flow of new people is important. A new applicant is possibly a brand new “best-fit”. 
        • Dustin Brandy 410: Grad fellows - 2 years. Faculty - 4 years to build community.
        • Petty Prior 410: Reapplication as usual, based around the size and quality of application pool. 
        • General: Maybe have them reapply, but let them know their application won’t be priority unless application pool isn’t fitting. 2 year limits also supported for both graduate and faculty. 
    • Dustin:  New technology for the BSP Classroom
      • How are you using these things in the classroom?
      • Jamboard seems obsolete-> advocating for large whiteboards/ clear boards at the moment
      • Canva premium tech -> classroom specific (subscription)

    • Reva:  Mid-Semester Course Assessment?

      • Take 2 questions ½ way through course (What’s going well/ not, what’s going on in the classroom)

    • Dustin:  Class Funds 
      • Limit spending for CCSN (cap at $25)
