Integrating Networks and Networked Information into Teaching and Learning
Dear cni-announce subscribers:
The Coalition for Networked Information is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Title IIB program to assist with funding the second year of its New Learning Communities initiative.
The Coalition will offer a program consisting of three components that encompass a total of five days of face-to-face interaction and several months or longer of online interaction. The centerpiece of the program is a three-day workshop based on the successful New Learning Communities workshop that the Coalition offered last year. Following on this year’s three-day program, two other events will be used to disseminate the lessons learned from the events of both years and to stimulate additional institutions to develop similar curricular projects. All three events will emphasize the role of networked information (content), not just networks (conduit), and the expertise of the librarian as a team member in developing new or revised curricula.
Participation in the three-day workshop will be invitational. Institutional teams will be selected from respondents to the Call for Participation. The second and third events in the program will be open registration workshops.
The program was developed by CNI’s Working Group on Teaching and Learning under the leadership of Philip Tompkins, Indiana University – Purdue University of Indiana, and Susan Perry, Mt. Holyoke College.
