Advancing the Humanities through Technology at Community Colleges
College Humanities Association
(CCHA) will carry out a two-year national education project entitled "Advancing the
Humanities through Technology at Community Colleges" to
the National Endowment
for the Humanities (NEH). The project will provide a set of activities
designed to allow teams from sixteen community colleges to develop and
carry out action plans for integrating technology and the newest approaches
to the study of the humanities into their humanities programs. The project
will also furnish the participating community colleges with technology
models, humanities materials, pedagogical approaches and support mentors
to aide in the implementation of their action plans. These plans, along
with the examples presented by visiting scholars and presenting mentors
at a national conference, will serve as models for other community colleges
across the nation.
The project's main components will include:
Project staff will include:
A national conference to be held at George
Mason University, 2-5 December 1999.

teams) to work intensively at the national conference and in the following
year to implement an action plan designed to integrate an innovative technology
model into the humanities programs at their school.
A web site with online discussion to provide
information to all participants in the project and to other interested
community college faculty and staff and to allow an ongoing discussion
devoted to the impact of technology on humanities education at community
