History of Leadership in Developmental Disabilities: A Wiki Project

Description

Uses Web and Wiki technology to collect, preserve, and share the history of leadership in the developmental disabilities field over the past 150 years, and pass on to future leaders the stories of how we got to where we are today. The project is creating an online history course and repository documenting the role of leadership and leaders in generating the ideas, movements, and programs that have been foundational to the developmental disabilities field, and using Wiki technology it will engage others in contributing to the multimedia content of the history course.
