Lehigh University Book Chat

This week I had the unexpected pleasureof taking part in a live twitter chat with a group of students from Lehigh University in the United States. It came about when I spotted a tweet about my book by the lecturer Silagh. This led to an invitation to chat to the class via a Twitter hashtag during their lesson.

It was a blast! Approximate 20 students sitting in their classroom, firing questions at me in rapid succession with me trying to keep track and keep up. They were great questions based on the first 20 chapters of my book which the class had been reading as a set text.

This is a great example of what the technology makes possible. The fact that I can make a connection with students 3000 miles away and give them direct access to the author of the book they are studying. Hope I get to do it again sometime.
