Full course description

Introduction to Digital Humanities Pedagogy will introduce educators and digital humanists to a praxis for using technology in learning and teaching. Many argue digital humanities is about building stuff and sharing stuff, reframing the work we do in the humanities as less consumptive and more curatorial — less solitary and more collaborative. But the humanities have always been intensely social, a vibrant ecosystem of shared, reworked, and retold stories. This three week course will explore how technology can be used to build learning communities within the classroom, while also thinking about ways we can connect our students to a much larger global classroom.

We will explore methods and approaches for using technology to teach the humanities. We will also discuss how we can use humanities tools to investigate technology. During the course, we will workshop specific assignments and devise new ones, both collaboratively and individually.
