As communication across digital networks becomes increasingly easier, more faculty are exploring networked classes through shared assignments and blogs, videoconferencing, and team-taught courses. Dr. Hal Haskell, Professor of Classics, Southwestern University, has team-taught courses in advanced Greek and Latin and archaeology with faculty from other campuses for fourteen years as part of Sunoikisis, a national consortium of classics programs. In the fall of 2012, Dr. Amanda Hagood, Mellon/Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) Fellow in Literature and the Environment, Hendrix College, and Dr. Carmel E. Price, ACS Postdoctoral Fellow of Sustainability, Furman University, connected their courses, “Writing the Natural State” and “Population and the Environment,” across disciplines and institutions to explore place-based learning in a networked context. In this seminar, these three experienced intercampus teachers will share successes, challenges, and lessons learned from networked teaching.
