Share Assignment Ideas for Workshop 4: Integrating Digital Humanities Projects into the Undergraduate Curriculum

For Workshop 4: Integrating Digital Humanities Projects into the Undergraduate Curriculum, after we go through one example of integrating a project into a course, we will work in groups to practice this technique. In order for this exercise to work, we need your help. Please add your courses and projects to the wiki. Your group will vote on which project they want to workshop–each group will use a checklist to brainstorm around creating assignments, assembling resources, and integrating digital humanities research into undergraduate courses. If you don’t have a course or project, don’t worry–someone else will. You’ll need to request access to the wiki if you haven’t already. Just follow the wiki link above and click the button for requesting access.
