Reminder: Dillard University Bleu Devil Book Club Tonight at 6pm September 27 2012 with President Walter Kimbrough

Bleu Devil Book Club Fall 2012

The Dillard Univblack greek 101booksersity Will W. Alexander Library is proud to present to the Dillard University Family, “The BLEU Devil Book Club”.
The purpose of the Dillard University BLEU Devil Book Club is to bring the Dillard University community together to share a dialogue of ideas, opinions, interests and causes - all within the context of a book club discussion format.
As an institution of higher learning, Dillard University is committed to producing graduates who are broadly educated, culturally aware, and concerned with improving the human condition. What better way to create an avenue of open communication, critical thinking, and healthy debate of today's issues then a book club. Our learning environment encourages a respect of diverse opinions and ideas in which the book club hopes to build upon so students, faculty, staff, and alumni can all benefit from this program.
To that end, the Will W. Alexander Library strives to include authors and topics that represent a spectrum of viewpoints and interests. We hope to highlight books that have both a national and cultural interest, as well as those books that are produced by local New Orleanians. However as sponsors of the book club, we do not necessarily endorse the views of any particular author but support the notion of sharing information in the interest of discovery, exploration and understanding. The BLEU Devil Book Club is a great way to encourage a commitment to literacy on our campus while at the same time building on the actual mission of Dillard University.
Readers will be encouraged to purchase and read the featured book and then join us in discussion concerning the book of the month. The Will W. Alexander Library book club discussion will be every 4th Thursday evening of the month. Besides attending the book discussions, readers can also discuss the current book of the month by following us on Twitter @DULibrary or on our Facebook page @:!/groups/2234159254/.
Our first book club discussion is: "Black Greek 101: The Culture, Customs, and Challenges of Black Fraternities and Sororities", written by and will be facilitated by our President, Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough!

We're back! In this session will be showing some of the best apps for education across multiple types of devices. It doesn't matter if you use an iPad, Android device, or even Google Chrome, more often than not, there is in fact an "app for that".

We will provide examples of fun assignments to conduct using apps, and also show some of the best ways to share an iPad screen or Android screen in your classroom. (Hint: It's not using a Document Camera!)

Get some new ideas for your classroom and share some of your ideas of how apps can be used in education.

As always, we welcome your attendance and your participation. Don't worry if you can't attend at 2 pm Eastern.  Our policy is that registrants have access to archives as do Individual Members.
