Abstract

Participants will learn how an online platform designed to bring students and faculty together in dialogue with each

other and the greater global community engages twenty‐first‐century learners through an interdisciplinary approach

to understanding global issues.

This session will focus on how to best leverage the technological strengths of twenty‐first‐century learners to address important global questions through an interdisciplinary networked community. Participants will learn from Sacred Heart University’s experience in developing an on‐line platform where students and faculty engage in dialogue about essential questions including justice, peace, identity, and the ethical use of technology, while sharing ideas, work, and resources across disciplines and within the greater global community.

Presented by: Marie Hulme, Director, SHUsquare, Virtual Public Square Project; Michelle Loris, Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, Professor of English and Psychology; Anita August, Director, Writing Across the Curriculum, Assistant Professor of English, all of Sacred Heart University.
