Teaching and curriculum development

(Proposals and areas of interest from participants as indicated on the THATCamp registration form.)

* Our college recently challenged all faculty to do more integration of technology in our teaching. As we are a small liberal arts college, the resources for training are limited. As a historian, I find myself behind the curve on many of the digital resources out there. I hope to learn what is out there for me and my students and how to use it.

* I’ve been designing digital projects for educational enterprises and would like to learn more about how to design projects more closely related to me individually both as a scholar and a teacher.

* I’m trying to develop curriculum for information skills for graduate students and advanced undergrads in language/lit. studies. I’m interested in getting suggestions on what would make up a basic tool-kit for the budding digital humanist; suggestions on how to keep up to date; and input on how to structure on online, modular sequence that would help individuals develop their skill-set.

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.
