Integrating Area Studies and Humanities Through Faculty Teaching and Learning Communities: Bridging Cultures in an Era of Internationalization and Web 2.0

A two-year project to support the linking and integration of programs in three interdisciplinary areas: Asian, Latin American, and Islamic and Arabic studies.

The goals of this new humanities initiative are to: (1) promote cultural competency by bridging cultural differences and promoting appreciation of cultural diversity through integration of Asian, Latin American, and Islamic and Arabic studies; (2) enhance teaching excellence by forming a faculty learning community that augments course contents and encourages innovative pedagogical strategies; (3) expand faculty and student knowledge by inviting outside consultants and scholars who are content experts in the areas; (4) establish digital humanities networks that systematically create resources, such as a CSUSB YouTube channel, CSUSB Wikis, and podcasting, for campus and local communities; and (5) reach out to the wider campus community and local communities by sponsoring public lectures that enhance intellectual life and by inviting participation from community members, local high school teachers and students to participate.
