Collaborative Learning

Gail Ludwig (University of Missouri, Columbia) and Jon Kilpinen (Valparaiso University) are developing one possible prototype for on-line, interactive learning in the History and Philosophy of Geography. In the Fall of 1996, Gail and Jon will each be teaching a course on the History and Philosophy of Geography. Students in these courses will be paired (one from Missouri and one from Valparaiso) and assigned the task of preparing on-line biobibliographies of important geographers using e-mail and the WWW. Initially, this collaborative exercise will consist of a single assignment in the middle of the semester. Multiple assignments and/or an on-going dialogue between classes on different campuses may evolve in the future.
