Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

The goal of the collaborative language program is to develop materials
that improve the pedagogy of language instruction in the United States.
Visiting Fellows will demonstrate an initiative in a program which,
ideally, will have far-reaching implications for the educational field
nationally as well as at their own home institutions. They will share
an energizing experience of interaction with colleagues from Dartmouth
and from other private four-year liberal arts institutions east of the

The Visiting Fellows actively participate in the development of
computer-assisted and video language instruction projects which will
expand their own understanding of language training as well as produce
valuable curricular and teaching innovations. These projects may be
developed according to the individual's interests or specific needs.

Honoraria will be received by those candidates who elect to teach in
Dartmouth's intensive summer language programs, which provide an
opportunity for Visiting Fellows to incorporate newly acquired
methodology. Fellows will receive recognition for participation in a
program dedicated to improving pedagogy as individual and collaborative
efforts are published.

Subject: New OTA Document: Critical Connections

Copies of the report "Critical Connections: Communication for the
Future'' can be purchased from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S.
Government Printing Office,Washington, DC 20402-9325, GPO stock No.
052-003-01143-3. $17.00 U.S.; $21.25 International.

I have the ascii version (without charts, illustrations, and sidebars)
in 1.5 mb. files. One is the whole document; the other is divided in
to chapters with the footnotes following each chapter.

I would like to propose several courses of action: 1) find a LISTSERV
that would put CRITICAL CONNECTIONS online. That would benefit
the BITNET community; 2) mount it on apple.com for anonymous
ftp within the Internet community 3) make the discs available to
BBS operators and others who would like to disseminate this. The
Mac disc is about 700Kb in compressed form; I imagine an ARCed
or ZIPed DOS disc would be about the same.

P.S. There is also a 52 kb. summary that is chapter one.
