One night on twitter, a group of us had a conversation about teaching and teaching practices and approaches to a certain course. The great thing about this conversation was that we teach at very different types of institutions, we’re at different places in our careers and yet, we had lots of things to say.
As Twitter conversations go, there were a number of people who popped in and out, but at the end of the conversation, someone suggested that we needed a space to do this sort of thing more regularly.
Of course, we know that we all have watercooler conversations around teaching with our colleagues, but sometimes it’s useful to get a cross-section of views from people at other institutions.
So the idea of technical and professional communication faculty office hours was born.
UPDATE: and since the first one was so successful, we’re gonna keep doing them. You can join us here: https://mit.webex.com/meet/facultyhours
See below for days and topics. We’ll post the links to the captured videos here as well.
