dc.description.abstractIn the summer of 2011, I joined University College Dublin, Ireland, as a permanent faculty member in the then‐named School of Information and Library Studies (now the School of Information and Communication Studies). As an academic working in a European university, I could avail myself of opportunities for European faculty and staff, including the Erasmus mobility program. The Erasmus program has provided teaching and training exchange opportunities for students, faculty, and staff between universities in Europe for over 30 years. David Hakken and Professor Vincenzo D'Andrea of the Department of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Trento in northern Italy invited me to Trento to do an Erasmus exchange and co‐teach with David, who was a former colleague of mine from Indiana University‐Bloomington. David held a regular visiting fellowship with the University of Trento and spent several summers teaching and doing research there. During the summers of 2013 and 2014, I visited the University of Trento with funding from the Erasmus program to design and co‐teach several workshops with David.en_US
