Abstract

This case study paper describes a virtual, cross-cultural collaboration in the development of an undergraduate teacher-preparation course in educational technology. In an effort to increase the cross-cultural and technological awareness necessary for 21st century teachers, the authors decided to collaborate on the design and development of an online course that would then be delivered to preservice teachers in the US and Namibia. All course content was designed as reusable learning objects with material and assignments being vetted by authors in both Namibia and the US to prevent any cultural bias and ensure relevance and appropriateness for students in both countries. This paper documents design issues and decisions made as part of the course development. The course was delivered online during the September-December 2004 semester with students from William Paterson University in New Jersey and the four Colleges of Education in Windhoek, Rundu, Ongwediva and Caprivi in Namibia taking the course together.
