We will discuss various aspects of the undergraduate course Abstract Algebra. The discussion will begin with three short presentations by experienced teachers of the course: Thomas Sibley from St. John's University, Collegeville, Minnesota, Cheryl Miller from SUNY Potsdam, and Olympia Nicodemi from SUNY Geneseo. Then the floor will be open to conversing about multiple facets of the course. For example, how should one begin such a course? How can I make my course valuable to students who will be high school math teachers in the future?
