PICTuring Learning Through International Collaboration

Dr. David Parkinson, of the Department of English, is a veteran professor who has embarked on a steep learning curve the past few years. Since offering a First-Year Research Experience (FYRE) in a class he taught in September 2016, Parkinson has gone on to combine FYRE with an international teaching and learning experience, the Project in International Collaborative Teaching (PICT). Parkinson works in partnership with his co-instructor, Dr. Payel Chattopadhyay Mukherjee to create a set of interconnected courses, with content provided at each location by both professors. As a result of the enriched instruction, students in Parkinson’s and Mukherjee’s classes gained a fully-integrated, international research experience without crossing borders.
