Distance learning

By Rod Boshart – University of Iowa political scientist David Redlawsk spent the weekend making preparations for a long-distance teaching project. Armed with a Web camera hookup and text and video blogging, the associate professor of political science will teach classes on politics and elections from his hotel room in Denver, where he is participating as a delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention. Redlawsk expects to greet students returning today for fall classes from his remote location.
