Abstract

To help attract new graduate students and also to help integrate technology into content area courses, faculty members at the University of Houston began teaching “linked” pairs of courses in 2006, by combining a graduate course on digital photography and storytelling with a popular culture in education course. Based on the success of this coupling, another pair of linked courses, combining digital photography and storytelling with a course on the Historical Development of Children’s Literature, was developed in 2008. In this article, the authors discuss the need for these linked courses, the benefits to students and instructors, and an overview of the specific technology tools and resources used in the courses.
