Digital Humanities and Liberal Education at Oxford IPLA

May 17, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’m teaching a two-day workshop on Digital Humanities and Liberal Education as part of the Institute for Pedagogy in the Liberal Arts at Oxford College of Emory University.

Here’s the description of the workshop.

Digital Humanities and Liberal Education

Digital technologies and the Internet have changed the context for inquiry and pedagogy, forcing the production and exchange of knowledge into an increasingly public, global, collaborative, and networked space, and increasing capacity to tackle complex questions across disciplines. How can we prepare our students to live and work in this changed context? How can and should liberal education change to meet that need? The digital humanities offer undergraduates opportunities to engage in authentic, applied research in the humanities and prepares leaders for the twenty-first century world of webs and networks.

Other posts about the workshop, including materials and agenda, are available on the IPLA blog.

Many thanks to my co-teacher,  Sean Lind, Digital Services Librarian at Oxford College.
