Digital Scholarship has exploded at liberal arts colleges in recent years. In order to capture a snapshot of that explosion, planners of the Digital Scholarship Seminars kicked off this year’s series with a panel presentation representing eight institutions: the Tri-College Consortium (Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College, Swarthmore College), Hamilton College, Occidental College, University of Richmond, Wheaton College, and Willamette University.
With six presenters, there was quite a bit of information to take in. If you missed it, or like me, want to hear it again, you can listen to the recordingand view the presenters’ notes, powerpoints, and links in this google doc. In this blog post, I want to summarize themes I heard across all six speakers and during the following discussion. « Read the rest of this entry »

Last week Digital Humanities Now (@dhnow) was relaunched. This experiment in how we evaluate scholarship begs the question, how will our colleagues outside the digital humanities evaluate our digital work? How can we make our work legible to them?

I was joined by Joan Fragaszy Troyano, Managing Editor and Sasha Boni, Editor, Digital Humanities Now, as well as Ryan Cordell, Assistant Professor of English at St. Norbert College and a member of NITLE’s Digital Humanities Council; Gabriel Hankins, University of Virginia Scholars’ Lab Fellow; and Chris Dickman, Ph.D. candidate in English Composition and Rhetoric at Saint Louis University, and co-organizer of THATCamp Pedagogy. « Read the rest of this entry »

How does digital storytelling get used at liberal arts colleges? This was the subject of yesterday’s impromptu videoconference discussion. The concept was suggested by recent discussion on NITLE’s instructional technology mailing list and a new digital storytelling working group exploring multimedia narrative in the liberal arts and beyond. Inspired by this, we hosted a Google+ Hangout for a dozen people. Discussion ranged over the definition and application of digital storytelling for teaching and learning, as well as practical considerations for implementing digital storytelling on a campus. « Read the rest of this entry »
