Collaborative Education

Courses | Resources


There are currently two facilities that are used for collaborative classes and for meetings for between Curry administrators and faculty and their counterparts at other institutions.

A list of classes that use the collaborative education model follows:

EDIS 788 - Field Project: Social Studies

Instructors: Cheryl Mason, University of Virginia & Michael Berson, University of South Florida
Spring 1999

A collaborative class taught jointly by Cheryl Mason, University of Virginia and Michael Berson, University of South Florida.

Preservice social studies students in EDIS 788 participate weekly in a collaborative learning experience with social studies preservice teachers enrolled at the University of South Florida. Using the collaborative distance education features available in the Curry School's Digital Classroom, students discuss issues related to the infusion of technology into the social studies curriculum through an online case study. Additionally, students from both universities engage in an asynchronous conversation with each other throughout the week.
