Here's an interesting incipient project about the flashpoint between technology and liberal arts education. This project will be open in January of 2005, so this would be a good time to get in on the ground floor. Even if you don't work in a liberal arts institution, it's a good bet that some of the objectives that you stress have much in common with liberal arts, such as critical thinking, problem solving, and writing skills. It looks like quite a promising project! I'll be interested in following its progress. Academic Commons

This is a fascinating idea! I think that, as small liberal arts colleges, we will need to begin to collaborate with each other in order to be able to realize some of the efficiencies of scale that are available to larger schools. We're already doing this in services; why not in some of the common instructional materials and strategies?
