Free venti mocha caffé latte all day in the Café Canadien today! This is the big news I’ve been itching to tell everyone for some time now.
With convocation just completed, we have another convocation (calling together) to announce. Jay Wilson has just agreed to join our faculty in Educational Communications and Technology. Jay is no stranger to many of you, as he has taught almost every course we offer in the program. I’m so very pleased because Jay is a close friend, but also because he is a fabulous teacher and scholar. He is, quite simply, one of the most talented teachers I’ve ever met, and we’re ecstatic to have him join our team.
Welcome Jay… er… sorry… Professor Wilson!
