A Message from Lee Ography, otherwise known as Neal Phillips, Faculty Association President

Yee-haw! Cowboy Lee Ography here — or Bib for short — reporting on the wild west of academia, where all sorts of troublesome critters are on the loose — from Pikachu to Charizard. Luckily, our amateur cowboys and cowgirls (who call themselves Pokémon trainers) are on a mission to round them up and catch em’ all.

In this week’s video interview with James Vrhovac, professor, English, James shares his ideas on how to harness the energy of these so-called Pokémon trainers to benefit their coursework by connecting lessons with Pokémon Go.

See y’all soon, folks!
