Fall Schedule

Almost two weeks beyond publication day, and the publicity for the new book seems to be kicking in.  So here's an update on how and where you can catch me or writing or speaking about the new book.

On Sunday, August 4th, an essay which provides an overview of the basic argument of the book appeared in The Boston Globe.  Some folks at WBUR, the NPR affiliate in Boston, read that essay and invited me to join them for a live call-in segment on the book on Thursday, August 8th.  You can listen to the show, and also find on their website a link to an interview I did for an online course about cheating in college.  The final essay in my three-part series on cheating for The Chronicle of Higher Education should be out within the next couple of weeks (check out Part I and Part II beforehand!).

I have a bunch of campus visits and conferences lined up this fall.  Here's the current schedule:

August 21-22nd: New TA Orientations, Emory University (GA)

August 26th, 9:00-1:00 am: Bay State College Professional Development Program (MA)

August 29th: 9:30-11:00 am: Fisher College (MA)

October 15-16th: Public Lecture and Faculty In-Service Day, American University of Armenia (Armenia)

November 1st, 10:00 am: Faculty Lecture, University of Notre Dame (IN)

November 3-4th: Panel Moderator and Book Discussion, Institute for Chief Academic Officers, Council of  Independent Colleges, Pittsburgh (PA)

In the meantime, in just two weeks my eldest child will start her first year the University of Notre Dame, so that makes me a proud (but broke) father.  Looking forward to observing the teaching and learning process in college from the perspective of a parent.  Go Irish!
