Connecting Students Internationally to Explore Postconflict Peacebuilding: An American-Canadian Collaboration
Mendeloff, David; Shaw, Carolyn
Journal of Political Science Education, v5 n1 p27-54 Jan 2009
This paper presents the design and assesses the results of an international collaborative course of American and Canadian undergraduates on the topic of postconflict peacebuilding. Using online discussions, a web-based role-play simulation, and videoconferencing this collaborative course sought to enhance student engagement with the material by exposing them to views from different countries and encouraging broader thinking about the complex set of activities and challenges involved in peacebuilding. The challenges and benefits of such collaboration are discussed. (Contains 8 notes.)
