The Spring semester begins this week and we want to start the new semester and the new year off with a bang! So, we’re brining back Live Tweets from the Lounge, that wonderful event where a faculty member sits in our student lounge and sends out tweets to you, our students and friends.

This time, Prof. Nathan Loewen will be the one behind the keyboard bringing you hot takes from the lounge at 2pm on Thursday January 14th. Don’t miss it.

All Work and No Play…

livetweetsfromthelounge2We’re experimenting with a new feature in our Department this year: Live Tweets form the Lounge. For we’re now on Twitter, and it occurred to us that periodically inviting a different faculty member to just hang out in our Department lounge for an hour and tweet about what’s going on, what they’re teaching this semester, or what they’re working on in their own research might be a way to engage students or any other Twitter followers. It’s fun, sure, but it’s surprisingly informative; we’ve done two of these so far (some tweets from our most recent are below) and, if they’re any measure, it seems to be a real success — if you’re measuring success by a variety of people on a large campus feeling involved in the life of the Department and learning about/communicating with each other. (Search #loungetweets on Twitter to see more.)

#LoungeTweets: Live Tweets from Faculty in the REL Lounge

livetweetsfromthelounge

 

Did you know we have a lounge? And sometimes it has donuts? And we like Twitter? Well, we do. And sometimes we tweet about donuts in the lounge.

We’re debuting a new feature next week: Live Tweets from the Lounge. One of our faculty members will take their work out of the office and into the lounge. While they hang out, they’ll share their deep thoughts with the rest of us using the hashtag #LoungeTweets. It’s a chance for them to show everyone what exactly it is they do.

Our first faculty lounge tweeter will be Prof. Altman. He’ll be in the lounge from 2-3pm this coming Wednesday. Follow him at @MichaelJAltman. Tweet him questions, stop by the lounge and say hello, or just glean wisdom from his insights. It’s like digital office hours but without the office and it’s only one hour.

So that’s #LoungeTweets on Wednesday Oct. 22 at 2pm. Don’t miss it.
