As many of you may know, we had a couple of connect pro chat sessions last semester to hear your ideas and suggestions on how we can take the department to the next level. They were very good sessions and many good ideas came out. Some of you have subsequently expressed an interest to switch to the conventional HTMLeZ chat room for the future “Chat with the Chair” sessions. I agree with this idea and have now created a site called “Chat with the Chair” where we can meet regularly to share ideas and answer questions. To participate in these chats, please go to http://learn.aero.und.edu/organization.asp?Browse=0&OrganizationID=4& and search for “Chat with the Chair” and seek permission to the site, as you normally do for your classes. These chats sessions are open to campus and distance students, and faculty may participate depending on their convenience and availability.
The next chat session is scheduled for March 31st at 7:00 pm Central Time. Look forward to seeing you there.
