Sharing Practices Project Team

The Sharing Practices Project Team is examining ways to create an online searchable repository for activities and initiatives underway that relate to women in computing but that have not been vetted as an effective practice. The Sharing Practices blog (http://sharingpractices.posterous.com/) is a place for Academic Alliance members to share their good ideas that have not yet graduated to Promising Practice level. Browse the tags for types of initiatives, targeted audience, or intended goals. Submit your promising practice! Follow the blog for daily or weekly updates to practices!
