What is a Colloquium?
Colloquia Models
You must be communicating every week (with both instructors and your fellow students). That means you would be on-line for several hours each week reading materials on various specified Web Pages, reading discussion threads, contributing to discussion threads in thoughtful ways, using e-mail communications, chat rooms, sending attachments and so on. (Several hours each week). The scholarly quality of your communication is being evaluated. Be thoughtful, be critical, be clear, be concise...
You must post your research proposal to date, in a colloquium-friendly form. (You book a time slot. Send your request to morton@uwindsor.ca ). For types of posting see example.
You must submit three formal critiques of presentations you review (i.e., those in the time slot you sign up for.)  (Sign-up Page).
