Dean's Intellectual Buffet
Dec 10, 2007. Monday
Dinner at Alumni House, Vassar College. Once or twice a year there is an event at Vassar College called, The Dean's Intellectual Buffet. It consists of a panel of Vassar faculty brought together under the umbrella of a topic. This panel was called the Virtual Sandbox and was focused on teaching with technology, specific endeavors, intellectual and pedagogical results. The faculty give presentations followed by questions. After the questions everyone goes into the next room for drinks and a continuation of the various discussions that have ensued. Then a buffet dinner follows. Tom Ellman was a participant in the program. Pictured are my dinner table companions.
L-R: Sue Trumbetta, Catherine Monian, Tina Hastings, Bill Straus, Tom Ellman, Katherine Libin, Steve Taylor.
