Questions and Discussion
• What are some areas that are “prime” for exploration either at
your institution or in higher education generally?
• Do you see the incubator funds fueling exploration into these
areas? If so, how?
• Are there data gaps that could be barriers to developing an
effective project?
• How do we best share what is being learned during these
projects?
• Additional questions?
Thank you.
