INTERACTIVE TV COURSES: Almost from its beginning, I have been active in our ITV network of courses. I have taught the Upper Division Medieval courses regularly in this program, and am now coordinating "Flowering of the MIddle Ages" on ITV each Fall semester. I have attended each of the University of Houston-sponsored workshops on ITV teaching, and have written synopses of them to distribute to all the lecturers in "Flowering of the Middle Ages" and its related course "Flowering of the Renaissance" (now titled "The English Renaissance"). With John McNamara, English, I have team-taught a workshop on teaching on ITV for these lecturers. A new feature to this class and World Civilizations to 1500 is the WebCT site associated with each class. After taking training courses in WebCT operation, I have developed extensive websites for each of these courses containing class notes, additional reading materials, readings, maps and Web links. I have also trained my TAs in the writing of and operation of these sites.
