Subject: Re-announcing a conference
There appeared in HUMANIST an announcement of the workshop EDUCOM
is co-sponoring with Assn of Am Colleges in SF next January. I
believe, however, that the note I had sent you had two letters trans-
posed in an e-mail address, since Fred Goodman at UMich has had people
report difficulty in reaching him. Would it be possible for you to
run a correction?
[Here is a corrected copy of the original announcement:]
Computer-Mediated Liberal Education
EDUCOM will sponsor a workhop, "Computer-Mediated Liberal Education --
on a Global Scale," in conjunction with the annual meeting of the
Association of American Colleges, Saturday January 13, 1990 in San
Francisco. The workshop will be a progress report -- and an invitation
to participate -- in an innovative project to explore global problems,
such as world hunger and appropriate uses of outer space. In this
project, outstanding teachers from a variety of disciplines and
campuses will address these problems, and, using computer conferencing
and networks, simultaneously demonstrate to their students the
relevance of the disciplines -- and inter-disciplinary thinking -- to
the world outside academe.
For more information, contact workshop leaders Frederick Goodman and
Edgar Taylor, faculty members in the School of Education, University of
Michigan, at 313 763-6717, BITNET: USERGCEE@UMICHUM.
