Appeal to present your ideas on blogs, Facebook, etc. for the English Department

Pardon the interruption with a quick request for help....

I am Chair of the English Department's Professional Development Committee, and I would like to offer an mini-CFP / appeal for short presentations (about 12 - 15 min.) for the committees' Mini-Tech Forum, which normally happens near the end of the semester.

It's a chance to share some ideas on technology in the classroom--obviously, anyone in this group could participate. Last year, we had an excellent presenter from the Humanities, for instance.

I've already reached out to several of you individually, but we could use an additional presenter or two. We reserve the lab next to E-255 and present a few ideas on tools or pedagogical techniques usually going through a PowerPoint with optional
quick demos. of websites, Web 2.0 tools and whatever. In the past two years, it's been a good event, though we could always could get a few more attendees.

Possible dates and times for this would be Monday, 5/23, Wed., 5/25, Wed., 6/1, or Monday, 6/6, all afternoons.

If you are interested, please e-mail me at with a few sentences on what you would be presenting on, and which date(s) would work. This is a real chance to show what great work you have been doing in this faculty seminar to the English Department. Thank you for your time and consideration with this. I look forward to hearing from you! --Richard
