Teaching DH 101: Introduction to the Digital Humanities

2:00pm - 3:00pm EST December 16, 2011

Seminar organizers encourage faculty, instructional technologists, librarians, and others interested in digital scholarship, digital humanities, and related projects to attend this seminar in institutional teams if possible. This seminar will be especially interesting to those interested in how to teach digital humanities to undergraduates. (Times EST)
Program Description

In a field that draws on multiple disciplines in the humanities and may involve technical skills from xml markup to database design to programming, developing a course to introduce students to digital humanities can be a daunting challenge. This seminar will feature faculty from a number of colleges who have developed and taught such courses. They’ll talk about the learning objectives of their courses, share materials (e.g. syllabi, assignments, and readings) and lend participants the benefit of their experience about what worked and what didn’t in these kinds of course. Panelists will include:

  • Jeff McClurken, Chair and Associate Professor of History and American Studies at the University of Mary Washington
  • Ryan Cordell, Assistant Professor of English and Director of Writing-Across-the Curriculum, St. Norbert College
  • Brian Croxall, CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow and the Emerging Technologies Librarian in the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University

Please register online by Wednesday, December 14, 2011. Registration is free; however, space is limited.
