Do school librarianship majors (graduate students) and undergraduate dance minors have common ground for academic interactions? In spring 2012, a project on the theme of Migration as a Transformative Process will organize collaboration between undergraduate dance students and graduate library science students. All student work will be based on questions about migration as a transforming process --“What is migration?” “How does migration transform cultures?” “Does cultural displacement always accompany migration?” Student assessment artifacts will consist of annotated lists of learning resources on migration, dance performances, learning objects based on the performances, and reflections. This presentation details the structure of the project and relays the initial findings. Technology-based communication (synchronous chat, email, Skype) will be evaluated for its influence on the process of collaborative efforts. The project forms an intersection of arts, information literacy education, and technology use.
