Event Description

Digital humanities projects can be simple or complex and can be incorporated into the classroom using a variety of tools. Attendees will learn how to plan and execute digital exhibits, digital mapping, and data visualization projects using tools that are relatively simple to teach and easy to incorporate into learning environments. The workshop will cover the following:

  • basic and intermediate tools
  • ideas for projects
  • methods for getting started and creating effective assignments
  • resources and techniques for finding images, data sets, and other source materials

The course will be a mixture of recorded lectures, demonstrations, and experiments with tools. A culminating Zoom session will give participants an opportunity to discuss their experiences, ask questions, share observations, and discuss next steps for creating an assignment using the tools and techniques covered in the class. The tools and methods covered in this workshop are useful for classes in any subject area. Registration is required by May 19th.

Artifact: Participants will create an assignment or action plan for incorporating a digital humanities project into an existing class.

Eligible participants will receive a $100 stipend for successfully completing this course.

This workshop falls under the AAC&U High-Impact Educational Practice of Collaborative Assignments and Projects.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
