Haestad Methods Launches Academic Online Discussion Group
UTalk Offers Professors and Students a Forum to Discuss Water Resources Issues
Haestad Methods, a provider of water resources modeling software and continuing education, launched UTalk, its innovative online discussion group created specifically for university faculty, researchers and students. Accessible at www.haestad.com/forums, this free forum offers an opportunity for the academic community to ask questions, raise issues and receive feedback on education, teaching methods and technology, and research-related topics in hydraulics and hydrology.
UTalk is unique from other discussion groups because it offers professors and students a support system where they can freely post and respond to questions, as well as share individual experiences and expertise. Haestad Methods' continuing education department will participate in the forum to provide users with additional insight on everything from basic theory to the latest techniques in water resources.
"UTalk will keep both educators and students up-to-date with the latest tips, tricks and methodologies for water resources modeling and engineering," said Dr. Thomas Walski, vice president of engineering for Haestad Methods. "Discussions may include a wide range of technical topics, as well as how to teach water resources; how to organize the computer lab for students; how to apply for Haestad Methods' scholarship programs; and what the job market looks like today."
