2015 Summer Institute Agenda
Summer Institute will meet at and near the University of Colorado Boulder ATLAS Institute. All Scholars check-in on their first day in the lobby of the ATLAS, located on the Southwest corner of Colorado Avenue & 18th Street. Enter from the East side (18th Street). Map of ATLAS Institute location.
- All Scholars need to bring their own laptops (and power cords & mouse)) each day to Summer Institute.
- The project does not provide laptops. In the event of device problems, laptops can be rented on campus for a fee with prior arrangements.
- Software installation: all Scholars must arrive on the first day of their workshop with AgentSheets 4.0 and/or AgentCubes 2.0 software installed, TESTED (pre-work sent to you), and ready to run on their laptops.
- Anyone needing extra help related to software should arrive at the ATLAS lobby by 8:00 to receive assistance.
- Parking permits: a team member (in a pink shirt) will be at the entrance to the Regent Parking Lot (SE corner of Colorado Avenue & Regent Drive) between 7:15 - 8:00 to hand out permits as you arrive.
- If you do not pick up a permit on arrival day, you will be ticketed. Cars parked without a permit will be ticketed. The project is not responsible for violation tickets.

Daily Scholar Reflections
- Every Scholar will submit twice-daily reflections on what they learn during the workshop. Reflection forms are found on the individual agendas below.
- Frequent reflection helps you remember key points of content taught each half day, provide a way to see other Scholar's experiences and thoughts, and allow the research team to assess how Scholars are acquiring and understanding (or not acquiring and understanding) information.
- Twice-daily reflections are required and graded for those purchasing CU Graduate Credits.
- We have multiple simultaneous sessions running in different rooms each day.
- Your session's main room is indicated below.
- Both the online Agenda and hardcopy Agenda in your binder includes information when you move rooms.
