Roberto Corrada's labor law course at the University of Denver embodies both growing interest in new approaches to teaching and learning and some of the latest uses of educational technology in the scholarship of teaching. In that course, Corrada engages his law school students, many of whom have had little experience in union work settings, in a simulation in which they have a chance to form their own union and to negotiate with him as their "employer." In the process, he extends classroom conversations in online discussion forums. He has also created a course Web site with links to numerous materials, claim forms, and other resources students can use to help them form their union, and he provides opportunities for them to create multimedia resources such as an online newspaper that reports on relevant developments in their organizing efforts. Practitioners' efforts around the country are also targeted at developing a new medium for the production and exchange of faculty knowledge and getting past obstacles. They are creating innovative strategies for collecting teaching materials, they are making those materials public, and they are experimenting with new forms of representation that reflect the complexity of teaching. They are also inventing tools that can facilitate the creation of new representations of knowledge and establishing the electronic environments and platforms that can support the scholarship of teaching and learning. This article explores the promise of scholarship in a networked environment in the following sections: Making Teaching Public; From Collections to Compression; Tools for Scholarly Representations; Developing Environments for Sharing the Knowledge of Teaching and Learning; and Conclusion. List of the URLs referenced in the article and related resources are included.
