All the Partner Institutions will use a common syllabus, and all the students will discuss and share their ideas on a specific Internet site (NING). While exploring the course materials at UNIMI, we will be engaging in dialog with students in other institutions abroad who are also taking this course in their home institutions. The course, therefore, is partly on-line.
All the readings will be available on NING.
