Update on Panel Discussions

Published: June 19th, 2004

Further to my previous post on the subject, the two events I mentioned are moving forward. Tim Bulkeley is “organising a session with a series of short presentations and panel discussion around the topic ‘How does an electronic communication environment change the way we do biblical studies?’” to be presented at the seventh conference of the Association Internationale Bible et Informatique (Leuven, Belgium, 23-24 July 2004). For a list of participants and subjects, see here.

As for Joe Fleener, this is what he’s written about the forthcoming Professor’s Forum on Exegetical Software in Classroom Instruction, to be held at Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary (Lansdale, PA, 9 July, 2004):

With the growth and development of electronic tools (such as BibleWorks, Accordance, Logos, etc.) professors are rethinking pedagogy.

- How do we make use of these “new” tools in the classroom?
- How can these “new” tools help me prepare for teaching?
- How can we instruct our students so that these “new” tools are a help and not a hindrance to their language development?

Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary will be hosting a one day “Professor’s Forum” to discuss many of these questions. Please join us for a time of networking and focused discussion centered on this very important topic.

More information is found here or in this PDF flyer.

My offer to host a similar online event still stands, but I think we are all too busy right now, so it would probably be better to get some feedback on these meetings first, and then see if we can arrange something. BTW, apparently, there is a similar seminar being planned for next SBL annual meeting later this year. I’ll let you know more about it if/when I get more information.

Panel Discussions

Published: May 20th, 2004

Over at SansBlogue, Tim Bulkeley is looking for a group of Bible scholars who are into the “doing biblical studies with a computer” business. The aim is to make
some short presentations and hold a panel discussion at the next Association Internationale Bible et Informatique conference to be held later this year in Leuven (Belgium). Read the full story here.

Joe Fleener, Director of Library Services at Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary, Lansdale, Pennsylvania (USA), has posted a note at the BibleWorks Users Forum where he says they are considering hosting a professor’s conference and panel discussion next July under the general title “Using Exegetical Software in the Classroom”.

These initiatives are becoming common place. Now, given the fact that not everybody who might be interested will be able to go to all these different meetings, I submit to you the possibility of hosting a
similar online event here at Bible Software Review. If we could have four or five people willing to invest some time in sharing their professional experience on the use they make of computer technology and Bible software resources in their writing, research, or teaching, I would be happy to coordinate the team and take up questions from readers. I’m just thinking aloud really (that’s what blogging is in a sense), but if you think this might be something worth pursuing and/or you would like to participate, please email me.
