Continuing the Conversation Webinar

Curious about teaching resources available for online instructors? Join the Continuing the Conversation webinar at noon Friday, Feb. 14, for Student Interaction with Learning Materials. The webinar will discuss IUanyWare, a client virtualization service that allows students and faculty to use any device with an internet connection to log into virtual computers.

With IUanyWare, both students and faculty can access the same software -- without having to pay for it or download it -- on similarly configured machines.

Learn more and register at the IU Online faculty website.

If you have any questions, contact Gina Londino-Smolar, senior lecturer, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, at glondino@iupui.edu.

Herron hosting 2 upcoming lectures

The Herron School of Art and Design is hosting two discussions in the coming weeks. The Phillip Tennant Furniture Artisan Lecture with Sylvie Rosenthal takes place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Feb. 19. Hear the exhibiting artist, woodworker and sculptor discuss her artistic practice, which centers on layering materials and visual histories in order to form complex constellations and arresting viewer experiences.

The second upcoming Herron event is a talk with artist and architectural designer Garland Fielder from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Feb. 26. Fielder will discuss his multifaceted approach to both fine art and the built environment, with an emphasis on the similarities rather than the differences.
