A three-year institute for 60 humanities scholars and staff that includes a three-day workshop, online discussion, and a capstone conference on developing international team-taught courses in the humanities.

The proposed Institute for Globally Networked Learning in the Humanities is a four-phase, three year long initiative (start July 1 2010 - June 30 2013) aimed at preparing and supporting humanities faculty, instructional design and international programs staff in their development and implementation a globally networked course. These courses allow students to work cross-culturally with their peer students from other countries, without leaving their home campus, using digital technologies such as the internet. These courses help humanities scholars bring a global perspective to the content of their course, and are a means to internationalize content in an engaging and affordable way. The Institute will consist of five discipline-specific 3-day workshops, an online course, ongoing support for the development and implementation of the course, and a capstone conference for sharing of lessons learned.
