Chalk Talks

About

"Chalk Talks" are an ongoing CEC-sponsored lecture series on current topics in electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering delivered by CEC faculty, other UT faculty, and CEC visiting scholars. The lectures are distinguished by the absence of prepared slides or PowerPoint presentations. Compared to a typical seminar, these talks are generally less hurried, more casual, and more open to dialogue. Given by an expert in the topic field, using only a blackboard and chalk, these talks are an opportunity to explore new ideas and solicit input from those in attendance. They occupy a unique space between a scholarly classroom lecture and a collaborative brainstorm.

Chalk Talks are usually held on a Friday at noon in the Welch Hall Convocation Center (Welch 2.122).
