Engaging Undergraduates with Collaborative Digital Scholarship Projects

June 19, 2015 § 2 Comments

On Friday, June 19, 2015 I’m presenting a plenary talk on “Engaging Undergraduates with Collaborative Digital Scholarship Projects” at the New American Colleges and Universities 2015 Summer Institute and Chairs Workshop.  This talk argues for intercampus collaborative digital scholarship projects as signature work in the emerging digital ecosystem, then lays out a scaffolded curriculum to develop that work, then finally examines the changes in faculty roles this type of work requires. Slides and references are below.
