The second goal of the open house is to solicit faculty interest in – and ask for your input regarding – the 2012-13 McGregor FLC.

The 2012-13 theme is Technology and Globalization, and the FLC’s purpose is to facilitate participants’ revision or development of courses incorporating themes and topics related to technology and globalization.

No matter what your interest in technology – big data and data mining, digital humanities, spatial analysis, new media, mapping, visualization technologies, or something else –  we are interested in what  you have to say, and hope that you will be interested participating in this year’s FLC.
