The eleven faculty members who gathered at the Center for Hellenic Studies on October 1 to discuss plans for an inter-institutional elementary Greek sequence had a productive, energetic meeting. Recordings of the meeting are available as podcasts.
At a follow-up session on Saturday, February 4, the group will design course materials, including an open, online textbook. The faculty will also continue to develop models of collaboration based on their institutional needs. For example, some institutions may pair together and alternate as the “home institution” offering the course, while others may bring their students together for online language labs. Some faculty may also encourage their students to use the new course materials for self-directed learning. Check back for continuing news about this exciting initiative, which serves to strengthen and support small Classics programs.
