Dr. David Chobar, associate professor of education, gave two presentations this summer at the World Future Society global conference in Minneapolis, Minn.
Chobar led a session at the World Future Society’s annual conference and was also invited to be one of only five presenters at the society’s all-day forum on best practices immediately following the conference.
Both presentations focused on a freshman class he teaches at Morningside called “Composition and Communication: The Future Ain’t What it Used to Be.”
Three Morningside students were part of Chobar’s presentation at the annual conference. Garrett Smith of Sioux City; Steven Hadley of Sioux Center, Iowa; and Evan Mann of Lincoln, Neb., answered questions about the course and each presented a research paper written in Chobar’s class.
Chobar has been a member of the faculty at Morningside since 2004. He teaches freshman foundations of education, secondary methods courses, and supervises student teachers. This is the third year in a row he has been a presenter at the World Future Society’s annual conference.
The World Future Society was formed in 1966 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational and scientific association to act as a neutral forum and clearinghouse for information and ideas about current trends and possible developments in the future. It now includes 25,000 members in more than 80 countries.
