Note: Gian Pagnucci’s “Open Office Hours” are now live on the IUP Facebook page: Open Office Hours with Gian Pagnucci.
You are invited to join Gian Pagnucci, IUP’s 2009–2010 University Professor, for a series of “Open Office Hours” offered via Facebook, the popular social-networking site. The interactive, on-line event begins on Monday, October 5, 2009, and will continue through Homecoming.
Pagnucci, a professor of English, will kick off his open office hours with a short video in which he discusses his research interests, including digital technology and the teaching of writing, digital literacy, and graphic novels.
IUP students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the public will then be invited to post comments and questions in response to the video. Pagnucci will respond to those questions in a second video to be posted later in the week.
The event will take place on IUP’s Facebook page. It is not necessary to have a Facebook account to watch the video or see the most recent comments. However, to read all comments and to post questions and comments, a Facebook account is required.
Fans of IUP’s Facebook page will receive a reminder about the open office hours event. Anyone who wishes to receive the reminder can become a fan of IUP on Facebook at any time before the event begins.
