Team-teaching Models: 

  • Re-centering the Humanities Mellon Grant (aiming to create 8 new team-taught courses): 
    • 2 faculty teaching one course
    • funds for course development ($2000)
    • funds for an adjunct to cover one team member regular course

  • Other models for team-teaching (from Prof. Sebastiaan Faber, Oberlin):

    • 14-day interdisciplinary mini-course on transitions to democracy (2005)
    • Eight countries (Germany, Spain, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Yugoslavia, Russia, Iraq ): eight lectures, six films.

Model [2]  

    • two faculty teaching one course over one semester
    • each faculty gets a full course
    • replacement for one course provided
