Note:The chat was supposed to take place at TI, however, due to some kind of technical problems at the C-Lab of ELU/Scinec, we had to carry it at YM, which I had to download with difficulty under time pressure into some of the computers.This resulted in reducing the time scheduled for this event to 30 minutes instead of one hour, since students had to leave to go to their classes.Despite all the dificulties, I am very glad that this event encourgaed some students to participate in the discussion, however.
I am so grateful to Susanne Nyrop, Dafne Gonzalez, and Arnold Mühren for accepting my invitation to chat with my students on a planned topic based on a required topic of a Unit, included in our 090 text book North Star, Unit 2 "Telecommuting".
