Another aspect of our work involves searching for a host department at some institution to take on the curriculum once it is developed. If you have any suggestions along those lines we would be much obliged to hear them, and any other feedback you might have on our project.

In closing, let me point you to a 15 minute video comprised of highlights from a Standford Humanities Lab lecture series. This is probably the best overview of what CoCo is about. The url is:

Part of this process has included identifying research which would be part of the curriculum, and this, in turn, has led us to your work. You will find a summary of some of your work at (insert link to relevant research summary).

    1. Timeframes
  • too short does not allow for meaningful participation
  • too long and people get bored and move on.
    1. Structure
  • develop a clear structure, what people can expect, and what/how they contribute.
    1. Questions to answer:

1. what themes? by discipline, by 'celebrity', by filter

 * Explore the problem of how to overcome the competition narrative, and how to promote cooperation literacy instead.

2. what output/ outcome? enlarging the CoCo community is the outcome, but we might also need to think about one or more specific products - makes it eaier to get people to contribute.
