Tech N Talk Schedule

I’ve blogged a couple times about Tech N Talks. In case you’re interested, here’s the full schedule along with the description that I sent out at the beginning of the semester to our faculty listserv:

Tech ‘N’ Talk Tuesdays:
12:30 – 1:30, the Faculty Lounge in Emerson
The Research and Instruction Department of LIS presents a series of brown bag lunchtime conversations about technology’s intersection with teaching and research. What does it mean to teach in an environment saturated with mobile devices and wireless Internet? How could sites like YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter help or hinder your teaching? Can you use digital maps to do more than just lookup directions? Is the digital age changing the way we engage in scholarship? Each Tuesday, faculty, library liaisons, and technology liaisons will meet in the Faculty Lounge at 12:30 to grapple with these and many more questions — a new topic each week. Please join us!
