Innovative uses of technology can help bridge the gap between the two. This panel will explore the possibilities of virtual fieldwork as an essential part of pre-professional education. Angela Calabrese-Barton will discuss the Electronic Multimedia Case Constructor (EMCC), and John Zimmerman, Tazuko Shibusawa, and Herbert Ginsburg will share their experiences with Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL).
