Jackie Smith, Professor of Sociology and Peace Studies here at Notre Dame, has taught in the Chatauqua short courses for college teachers for several years. Dr. Smith used our course management system to extend the time she and other Instructors taking her course spent together June 8-10th, 2006 in midtown Manhattan. Because of this space, they could more fully engage on Social Movements and Globalization. I just heard from Jackie. This type of collaborative space has worked so well for her that she’s planning on utilizing it again in 2008.
