This seminar presents an unusual relationship between Southwestern University, a liberal arts college located in the United States, and a partially American-managed archaeological research institute in Italy, the Restoring Ancient Stabiae Foundation. Dr. Thomas Noble Howe will outline ways of maintaining the high standards of American liberal arts colleges—with their intimate interactions between students and faculty—while combining education abroad and synchronous distance learning in a way that more affordably facilitates the insertion of international experiences into increasingly “sequenced” majors. With receptive faculty, good equipment, and reliable backup, a system may be established that obviates the need to replace faculty who are abroad and allows students studying abroad to follow essential courses for their majors. In this seminar, Dr. Howe shares his vision for providing students with international experience through collaboration with unusual international foundations like the Stabiae Foundation. Through discussion with colleagues at NITLE Network institutions, participants will examine possibilities for internationalizing the classroom through partnerships and emerging technologies.
