Faculty Development Seminar Series

A new SEAS faculty development seminar series has been organized.  Its focus will be discussion of emerging distributed communication and collaboration solutions in engineering instruction.  All seminars will be held on Fridays, from 10 – 11 a.m. in Rice Hall 032 (directly beneath the auditorium) at the University of Virginia.

The sessions will be available live on the web for those who might like to join the sessions from afar and recorded for those who cannot attend live.  All are welcome.  Details regarding access to the broadcasts will be provided closer to the time of the seminars.

These sessions are intended to be semi-formal presentations with plenty of Q&A throughout.  We hope you will join us.  Finally, note that two of the sessions will be led by our colleagues Malathi, Reid, and Michael who were recently funded by President Sullivan’s Hybrid Course Challenge.
