Web Presentations

The University Guild hosts web presentations on University related topics.  By broadcasting over the Internet, attendees can have Valpo come to them.  People may attend as individuals at their home computer or as a group in a central location such as a church, library, or office.

Past Web Presentations Include:

The Christmas Star - Dr. Bruce Hrivnak, Department of Physics & Astronomy.  The Gospel according to Matthew, in recounting the birth of Jesus, records a visit by magi who were led by a star.  What was that star?  Various suggstions have been made over the years, some miraculous and some astronomical, including several by the famous 17th century astornomer Johannes Kepler.  These various ideas will be rviewed and critically examined as we explore the identity of this "star."    

Creating an Environment that Promotes Creativity and Innovation - Doug Tougaw, Ph.D., Richardson Professor of Engineering, will share information on unleashing creativity.   This presentation is ideal for anyone with an interest in developing their creativity.  Dr. Tougaw is nationally-recognized for his scholarship on ethics and emerging technology.  Cost:  $25 (register here).  Length:  60 minutes.
