    Abstract:
    This Level 2 Internationalizing Humanities Education through Globally Networked Learning Project will test and implement models that will assist humanities faculty to internationalize their classes by using available Internet-based tools to create a cross-cultural curriculum. Faculty will be trained to use learning management software and socio software tools to generate collaborative assignments that challenge students to negotiate and build shared learning cultures online. The project?s goal is to demonstrate that any humanities faculty member can teach a course in a globally networked learning environment if given the appropriate technological, pedagogical and intercultural support. A blog-based process journal will be used to track the challenges faced and lessons-learned during the implementation of humanities courses in Medieval Literature, Art History, and Drama Studies that will conducted with foreign partners in Russia, Ghana, and French Canada.
    Notes:
    The development of a faculty development model for international online collaborative humanities education, focusing initially on partnerships with universities in Russia, Ghana, and Canada.
