Teaching Oceania Series

Teaching Oceania is a new publication series created with the collaboration of scholars from around the Pacific region to address the need for appropriate literature for undergraduate Pacific Islands Studies students throughout Oceania. The series is designed to take advantage of digital technology to enhance texts with embedded multimedia content, thought-provoking images, and interactive graphs. The first volumes (1-4) were drafted in a collective process at the Center for Pacific Islands Studies' Teaching Oceania workshop, held 16-18 February 2016, and cosponsored by Kapiolani Community College and Brigham Young University Hawai`i.

Each volume is accessible as an interactive iBook (to be opened in iBooks software on Mac computer, iPad, or iPhone) and also in PDF format with free PDF reader software. In the PDF version, links to media are provided and may be accessed where Internet connectivity is available. In sites with limited Internet or computer access for individual students, we strongly recommend the materials be projected, shared, and explored in classroom settings.

For more information about the particular volumes here or future volumes, please contact Julianne Walsh (jwalsh@hawaii.edu) or (808) 956-2668.

Please note, prior versions in iBook must be deleted from the user's application library prior to downloading the new version. Otherwise, the application will not load the new version of the iBook.
