"Feathers of Fire: A Persian Epic"
A cinematic shadow play for all ages created by Hamid Rahmanian, a 2014 Guggenheim fellowship-winning filmmaker/visual artist. The play unfolds an action-packed magical tale of star-crossed lovers from the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh ("The Book of Kings"). Rahmanian’s graphics, derived from the visual tradition of the region, are rendered as puppets, costumes, masks, scenography and digital animation, all of which will come to life in a “live animation” shadow casting technique perfected by shadow master Larry Reed on a cinema-size screen. Includes an original score by the acclaimed musical team Loga Ramin Torkian and Azam Ali. $20 ($5 for students). Parking is included in the cost of the ticket. tickets.oswego.edu or 315-312-2141.

The SUNY Cooperative Online International Learning (COIL) initiative is designed to support the development of classes in which students in domestic classes interact in a meaningful manner with students from a partner class in a foreign country. Student interaction may be synchronous or asynchronous and relies on a variety of web 2.0 tools (including wikis, blogs, Nings, course management systems, Skype, Google talk, Google Docs, VoiceThread, YouTube, Vimeo, Imgur, and Picasa). Three faculty members at Oswego are currently developing COIL classes. We are hoping to have several additional COIL classes offered during the 2012-2013 academic year.
This workshop is for those developing COIL courses and for those considering the development of such courses. Status reports will be provided for courses under development. A discussion of issues and problems encountered during the development of these courses will take place.
