Workshops and Independent Projects Information

Recording a Flex Workshop/Activity

Recording attendance of a Flex workshop or activity is done online.  You must enroll in a workshop or activity before you can record that you completed the activity.  Faculty are not required to sign attendance rosters at the Flex activities.  Recording attendance on the Faculty Flex website is all that is required.

Faculty must make every effort to enroll by midnight on the day of the workshop/activity and record the attendance by the deadline to receive Flex credit.  Should a faculty need to enroll after the workshop/activity date, faculty must contact the Flex Coordinator for manual enrollment.  In order to receive Flex credit, faculty must then self report their attendance via "Your Contract" page by the designated deadline to report their Flex obligation.
