Commonalities: we supply lunch, you supply conversation
Commonalities is an ongoing dialogue in support of teaching sponsored by Information Technology Services, The Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy, and The University Libraries. Do you wonder what your colleagues think about e-books and their place in the classroom? Or perhaps you want to know more about how others are using media for lectures or how to grade projects that are submitted by groups or in non-traditional formats? You can find out what your colleagues think about these and other topics related to teaching and research by attending Commonalities. Discussions are informal, though a facilitator is invited to start the conversation. Recent topics have included engaging students outside of the classroom with Provost John Pelissero, e-text-books with Dean Robert Seal, and the digital humanities with Dr. Stephen Jones.
Beginning in Fall 2012, Commonalities lunches may be attended in-person or online using Adobe Connect.
Do you have an idea for a Commonalities topic? Would you be interested in being a facilitator? If so, please contact Jeannette Pierce (email@example.com).
