The idea for this research came out of an initiative undertaken between my advisor, Joyce Rubin and myself when we reflected, one afternoon, about the benefits of collaborative teaching, over the professional isolation experienced by teachers in Antigua/Barbuda. As educators responsible for staff development we wondered how collaboration between US Skidmore residential students and Skidmore distance learners in Antigua might impact local students' perceptions of learning and classroom life. We also were interested to see if any changes to teachers' delivery of curriculum and instruction would occur as a result of this collaboration.
