Faculty Council Delicious Dialogues Continue to be a Success!

The newly created Faculty Council’s “Delicious Dialogs” Monthly Faculty Research Talk & Brown Bag Lunch continues to be a great success at the Broken Arrow campus!  Delicious Dialogue is a faculty led venue where each month, a speaker is highlighted to talk about their research, or some initiative that they have undertaken.

The Faculty Council began this new monthly event in November 2014 to broaden the social space just for faculty, “Delicious Dialogs Brown Bag Lunch & Talk”. Each lunch features a faculty speaker discoursing for the first 15-20 minutes on her/his current research and/or endeavors, followed by a short Q&A session. The remainder of the hour is reserved for talking with  colleagues. Dr. Cheryl Van Den Handel, Faculty Council President notes, “the intent behind this monthly event is for faculty to share our research, and to get to know each other better.  Oftentimes, we are so busy, we don’t have the opportunity to visit with our colleagues in other departments or colleges.”

So far, in Broken Arrow, we have heard from Dr. Erik Terdal on his study abroad and summer academy opportunities at NSU, Dr. Allyson Watson who spoke about outreach engagement in the local community, and the most recent – Dr. John Mercer who spoke about the Summer Intersession class where students visit Ashland, Oregon for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.  See below for a photo of the event.

Be sure to join us if you can for the next Delicious Dialogue on February 11 in the Visitor Center Gallery from noon to 1:00 p.m. where Dr. Martha Parrott, faculty of the College of Science and Health Professions will discuss service learning models for creating programs.
