ABSTRACT
This case study examines the experience of community college faculty participating within a specific learning community of students, teachers, and broadcasters charged with the responsibility to create common coursework and a town hall meeting on the issue of stem cell research. Videotaped data sources include learning community meetings, classroom sessions, the town hall event, interviews with participants, and group reflective discussions. Implications and opportunities for replicating this collaborative learning community experience are discussed. The case description and findings are presented through a Webtext with embedded video. As all data were videotaped, it became possible to present research findings through a unique new media approach to multimodal scholarship. This format honors the thick, rich, first person descriptions given by the faculty participants. It provides a showcase for the participants' own words expressed in their own way and empowers the reader/viewer of these findings to extrapolate their own interpretative meaning.
