An early afternoon faculty/student intellectual jam session (with free pizza!). Help us tease apart the art and science of motivating thought provoking discussions – during class, in recitations, via the net, anywhere.
Hosted by UK Professor Jeff Rice, Martha B. Reynolds Endowed Professor for Digital Media (Writing, Rhetoric and Digital Media).
With presentations by three of UK’s most experienced teaching faculty:
* Kathi Kern, History/CELT
* Jonathan Golding, Psychology
* Ron Wilhelm, Astronomy
Speakers will cover some theory, experiences, techniques, and technologies for provoking effective discussions.
At the beginning of the Fall 2011 semester, we met with all of the new faculty hires in the College of Arts and Sciences. This series of podcasts introduces them and their research interests. Jeff Rice is an associate professor in the Division of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Media. Rice focuses on writing and rhetoric in new media environments as they pertain to networks and network theory. He is also one of three co-directors of A&S Wired, a new residential college in Keeneland Hall.
University of Kentucky College of Arts & Sciences Dean Mark Kornbluh sits down with professors Cristina Alcalde and Jeff Rice to talk about A&S Wired Residential College. Along with Psychology professor Nathan DeWall, Alcalde and Rice serve as co-Directors of UK's newest Living Learning Community.
