Have you been amazed at the social communities that your students participate
in using Internet tools and wondered if they might be helpful in the classroom?
Have you been impressed at how students, and perhaps colleagues, have used
digital environments i.e. discussion boards, blogs, wiki's, and social
bookmarking/annotation tools, to name a few, to create engaging assignments? In
short, do you want to increase the participatory learning in your course, both
in and out of the classroom?
In this five-day Institute, facilitated by Mary Ann Shea, Director, Faculty
