Three faculty members at a small women's liberal arts college will discuss our understandings of how to approach collaborative on-line courses in ways that are particular, contingent, located and inflected by meaningful difference. We will reflect on our experiences with an on-line forum known as Serendip Studio, unpacking some of the inequities and complexities in building international communities of learning, and underscoring the need to make space for the unknown, too often glossed by a rush for the generic and the universal.
