Approachable Digital Humanities for the Classroom
In this age of ever-present technology and innovation, educators in the humanities are thinking creatively about how to incorporate digital tools into the classroom in order to engage students in new and productive ways. In this workshop, Professor Cebul will discuss the role of DH in his course “Transformations of Urban America, 1945-Present,” the utility and drawbacks of digital pedagogies, and the range of resources open to students interested in bringing DH tools into the classroom or personal research. Applications and resources to be discussed might include GIS, Esri’s StoryMaps, products of the Knight Lab, Scalar, and Google Earth Pro. Given the growing range of materials available in the DH toolkit, this workshop will focus on exploring what an approachable, thoughtful philosophy of digital humanities pedagogy might look like for graduate educators.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the History department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
