We propose to create a website that contains images of globalization to aid students' active learning. The website will use Flash-based visualization technologies to empower students to map conceptual and thematic interrelationships among images in the database. By facilitating nonlinear navigation, the site will encourage active learning by enabling students to direct their own learning about the social, economic, technological, cultural and normative dimensions of globalization. The proposed project builds on pedagogical techniques and a repository of imagery the investigators have previously used in their graduate seminars about globalization.
