March 2016

In this virtual Faculty Commons section, our goal is to create a suitable space for free-flowing interaction among faculty on topics related to pedagogy and research. The Faculty Commons will include both open discussions that are visible and public, and internal university discussions that require SHU log-in.

Open discussions: Our first entry on interdisciplinary learning brings together two faculty members, Prof. Jim Castonguay and Prof. Bob McCloud, in our new media studio. In this video conversation, they reflect on the steps involved in designing the Human Computer Interaction course – a course that exemplifies the convergence between digital media and computer science.

Internal pedagogical forum: In Fall 2016, we will introduce online roundtable discussions on a variety of topics. These will require SHU log-in and are meant for SHU faculty only.

We request submissions from faculty and students to build this section of SHU Square. Please send us your ideas by filling out the form below.
