Money isn’t an end in itself; rather, it is a means to an end, that of having the kind of life you want. More money doesn’t necessarily mean a better life either. It’s what you do with your money that counts. In this workshop, you will consider your goals, explore financial security, and then begin examining your money choices to see how they match up with what’s important to you. The goal is to equip you to put your money where it will best improve your life, in both the short-term and the long-term.

TBL was originally developed nearly 40 years ago by a professor of organizational psychology to maximize the power of teams, and carefully designed to avoid the pitfalls of small group learning. TBL provides students with a more intimate, small class feel even in large theater-style classrooms with fixed seats. TBL teachers report high levels of student attendance, preparation, participation and critical thinking. TBL students report enjoying class and being more motivated and actively engaged. Collaboration in teams builds student problem-solving skills that are valued by employers in real-life workplace environments. Just like on the job, participants are expected to be responsible and prepared as individuals and then bring their best efforts into group activities.

Subrecipient Monitoring

Collaborations with subrecipients are an essential part of research, but, how do we properly manage subrecipients? Join OSPA and SPA as we examine the Uniform Guidance’s expanded requirements for subrecipient monitoring on Federal financial assistance awards. We will review roles and responsibilities within ISU, and important source documents like the Subrecipient Request Form, the Subrecipient Information Questionnaire, and the Subrecipient Risk Assessment. We will discuss how subrecipient agreements are customized to reflect risk and to enhance monitoring. Subrecipient monitoring techniques such as invoicing requirements and approvals, progress reporting requirements and review, site visits, and more will be addressed. Also, we will discuss dealing with various subrecipient issues. This training will enhance your understanding of how subrecipient collaborations work, and will prepare you to meet the Uniform Guidance’s requirements for subrecipient monitoring.
