Final Presentations for the Monica Lewis Economic Policy Competition
Monday April 22nd, 12:00-1:00, in the Savannah Ballroom
This academic year the economics department hosted the Monica Lewis Economics Policy Competition, where interdisciplinary student teams addressed a pertinent public policy issue for a grand prize of $7,500. The prize is supported by Armstrong Economics Department alum, Mr. Dale Lewis. This year's public policy issue surrounded natural gas management and utilization. From the final report documents submitted by the participants, the two finalist teams have been selected and will each deliver their analysis in the form of a brief presentation at this event. After the presentations, the judging committee will deliberate and the winner will be announced. Refreshments will be served.

Mr. Sahin's lecture on "The Place of Turkey in the World Today" will be directed towards Jason Tatlock's History of the Middle East class. Mr Sahin is currently the director of the Istanbul Center of Atlanta.
To ensure that SACSCOC guidelines are met, and that no uncertified Armstrong faculty are assigned to teach a partly or fully online course after April 1st, 2014, the Office of Online and Blended Learning will begin accepting faculty enrollment requests in the four-module eLearning Faculty Status course. This course is required for all full-time and part-time faculty members who teach fully online or partially online and will provide the critical tools needed for state and federal compliance as well as the tools for producing the highest possible quality online and blended courses.
If you will be teaching a fully online or partially online course in the next year, click on the link below and fill in the brief survey with a choice of dates so we can register you for an eLearning Faculty Status course. If you are planning to develop or teach a course in the near future, you are urged to complete the form soon so that the training can take place in time to benefit both you and your students.
If you have further questions about this course, visit the eLearning Faculty Status Course Web page or contact Dr. Dean Earlix (firstname.lastname@example.org or 4-2584). Once you have filled in the brief survey below, you will be contacted again with a choice of dates that you can take the course during the coming year. This step will not only ensure that Armstrong complies with SACSCOC requirements, but will help our online offerings match the quality students expect from all courses offered by our university.
