interactive lessons which will incorporate real time chat, discussion
boards, and a suggested reading list.
The ISCID Online
Summer Workshop will be two weeks long. For the first week, students
will be given preparatory reading material. They are to read this material
and prepare a five to seven page response to one of the suggested articles.
These papers will be circulated among fellow participants in the workshop
and will also receive feedback from ISCID representatives.
The second week
of the ISCID Online Summer Workshop will consist of interactive online
sessions with teachers, many of whom are fellows of ISCID (see below
for a preliminary schedule) at ISCID . The preliminary reading suggestions
in week one will prepare students for the material that will be presented
in the interactive sessions in week two. Workshop presenters will present
material in a diverse range of disciplines. Students will be given ample
time to interact, ask questions, and participate in discussion.
