Another FaCTS Mellon Project

Religions in the Ancient Near East

Dr. Michael M. Homan

by Dr. Michael M. Homan

With funding and support from FaCTS, I would plan and ultimately implement a thorough revision of my course Theology/History 2250: Religions in the Ancient Near East. By initially researching open space technology and how it can be applied to learning, and by collaborating with research librarians at Xavier, I would set up a course in which students would use the available resources in our library and through the internet to problem solve, enhance critical thinking, and author pertinent material to the course in a variety of open course ware formats. My objectives would be to increase student ownership of the course material thus enhancing interest, and to completely transform the classroom experience from lecture based to an open space learning format.
