Case Studies of Digital Humanities Pedagogy

August 3, 2012 § 1 Comment

What are the characteristics of digital humanities pedagogy? What are high impact practices for digital humanities teaching and learning?  We’ll attempt to answer these questions in a session on “Teaching and Learning with Digital Scholarship” in Bucknell University’s Comparative Humanities Summer Seminar on digital scholarship in the humanities.  To help us think through these questions, we’ll be examining the following cases:

1. Looking for Whitman:

Gold, Matthew, and Jim Groom. “Looking for Whitman: A Grand, Aggregated Experiment.” In Debates in the Digital Humanities, edited by Matthew K. Gold, 406–408. University of Minnesota Press, 2012. This chapter is drawn from the following blog posts:

Gold, Matthew. “Disrupting Institutional Barriers Through Digital Humanities Pedagogy.” Diversity & Democracy 15, no. 2 (2012).

“About Looking for Whitman – Looking for Whitman”, n.d.
