Traveling Workshop FAQ

Pick your Traveling Workshop Strand(s)!

Don’t know which strand to choose? Just ask or select a couple of options! We have several mathematical strands that are broad so that you can pick a strand for your TW and make it your own.

Key People involved in planning an AMATYC Traveling Workshop (TW)

The Traveling Workshop Director (TWD) is the initial contact person requesting a Traveling Workshop. The TWD schedules the TW, chooses the Traveling Workshop Facilitator (TWF), and works closely with both the Traveling Workshop Coordinator (TWC) and Traveling Workshop Facilitator to ensure a successful TW based on the institution or affiliate request.

The Traveling Workshop Facilitator (TWF) works with the TWD to plan the TW, facilitates (presents) the requested TW, works with the TWD regarding travel, and other duties as needed or required for the TW to be successful. The TWF is an AMATYC member, math faculty, or administrator with an outstanding presentation record.

The Traveling Workshop Coordinator (TWC) communicates TW information, emails the requesting institution or affiliate, emails potential facilitators, introduces the Traveling Workshop Director (TWD) to the Traveling Workshop Facilitator (TWF) via email, and other duties as needed to assist in planning an effective Traveling Workshop.

Traveling Workshop Cost (Example below of a Traveling Workshop on a $2,000 budget)

Example of a Traveling Workshop on a $1,500 budget, grant funds will be disbursed under the following conditions: An honorarium of $750 for the Traveling Workshop Facilitator (a W-9 is required to process the honorarium, and if there are multiple Traveling Workshop Facilitators, they split the $750 honorarium). Any remaining funds, approximately $750, are used to cover expenses such as airfare, lodging, per diem amounts, location of the Traveling Workshop, food and supplies for participants, if applicable.

Traveling Workshop Article for AMATYC News

After completion of a Traveling Workshop, AMATYC will request the TWD submit an article to the Traveling Workshop Coordinator for publication in the AMATYC News. Guidelines for writing the article and an example article will be provided to assist.

Traveling Workshop Time Frame

The time frame from request to finish depends greatly on the TW Director and the requesting institution or affiliate.

Traveling Workshop Grant Information

The cost of an AMATYC Traveling Workshop is dependent on several factors including an honorarium and travel costs for the facilitator, as well as costs associated with your specific request and location, with a total usually between $1,500 and $2,000. As many of us know, this can be the cost for one faculty member to attend a conference!  An opportunity to help with this cost is to complete the AMATYC Grant Application along with your Traveling Workshop request.  A TW Grant can cover in part or in whole the costs associated with a Traveling Workshop.
