This panel will present the results of an innovative undergraduate course that endeavored to use the power of Web 2.0 tools to challenge what it means to teach and learn in our highly mediated, networked world. The course centers on a core "text," a documentary entitled Iraqi Doctors: On the Front Lines of Medicine, which describes a 2003 medical exchange between USC and Baghdad. Students in the course "finish" the story by creating video projects using and adding to the documentary footage (portions of these projects will be shown). Results include the panelists' reflections and the issues from three distinct points of view: the professor's, the documentary filmmaker's, and an undergraduate student's.
