Splash at Northwestern: Winter Splash January 21, 2023

Splash 2023: April 22nd, 2023 

Class times will range from 50 minutes to 3 hours and 50 minutes, with 10 minutes between each class session to allow students to go to their next class. There will be a one hour lunch break with free food provided to all teachers and volunteers. Even if you're not teaching until later in the day, come by to get food as thanks for teaching!

Prior to the event:

Make sure you submit all room and classroom material requests before the teacher registration deadline! We need to approve all classroom purchases beforehand in order for you to receive your reimbursement up to 30 dollars. If you plan on requesting a reimbursement, please read the section "After the event." If you need specific AV equipment, safety equipment, or other attributes for your classroom, make sure you request it as you're registering your classroom so we can find a room that fits your needs. In early 2023, we will have a series of teacher workshops for you to get a better sense of the community you'll be teaching to and how to apply best pedagogical practices towards your lesson planning and teaching. This will be a great opportunity to improve your teaching abilities!

    We will be holding teacher training on Thursday, December 1st and Saturday, December 3rd, 2022, as well as twice in January. If you cannot attend or think you need more individualized help, please attend one of our Splash Office Hours (Winter quarter) or reach out to us via email so we can coordinate with you on an individual basis. We would still love for you to be able to participate in our event!

    Splash Office Hours

    For additional help developing your class, we are holding Splash Office Hours weekly, the time is TBD and they will be held virtually.

    Day of the event

    On the day of the event, we ask that teachers check in at least 30 mins before your first class so that we know that you're present and ready to teach. This is also when you'll get important information like your class roster! Lunch will be provided.

    After the event

    Please keep all itemized receipts. The itemized receipts will need to contain the following:

    • What was purchased
    • When it was purchased
    • Where it was purchased (address and phone number)
    • A zero balance or paid in full

    During the event, we'll distribute reimbursement forms and after your reimbursement request is approved, you can pick up your reimbursement from the Cashier's Office in Norris. Please note: We are unable to reimburse for sales taxes due to Northwestern University reimbursement protocols.
