News & Reports


Newsletters, workshops, conferences and journal publications as well as electronic methods of communication and dissemination—e-mail, newsgroups, distribution lists, ftp, gopher services, and the World Wide Web (WWW)—are being used to share information about the Project inside and outside the Consortium and to disseminate innovative models and material developed elsewhere across the country. The Consortium is cooperating with other NSF consortia in mathematics, in chemistry and in engineering.

A critical aspect of internal communication will be to catalyze connections between faculty in different disciplines and at different institutions, such as biologists at Suffolk Community College and Stony Brook and a mathematician at Dowling College who each want to develop education software illustrating certain types of mathematical models in biology.

To develop collaboration and cooperation across disciplines, there are a regular series of multidisciplinary meetings at each institution along with regional and state-wide conferences and workshops.

Many components of this model for interconnected learning developed on Long Island will be implemented in the later years of the Project across the SUNY system and at selected institutions across the country.
