John Sener & Steve Gilbert, et al. will discuss each Case, such as the one described here. We'll clarify problems (identify expectations, options, resources, limitations, responsibilities), and develop useful advice - both supplemental and structural. 
Case 2 Jingoistic Ethnocentrism (re Globalization - Diversity)
"...when instructors and courses took an American-centric perspective and refused to understand the importance of personalization in online learning -- in this case insisting all students (regardless of country of origin) follow US education standards and use American data bases instead of encouraging Canadian students to use resources from our own country."
