I’m elated today to announce, along with my fellow editors, Matt Gold, Katherine D. Harris, and Jentery Sayers, and in conjunction with the Modern Language Association Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Concepts, Models, and Experiments, an open-access, curated collection of downloadable, reusable, and remixable pedagogical resources for humanities scholars interested in the intersections of digital technologies with teaching and learning. This is a book in a new form. Taken as a whole, this collection will document the richly-textured culture of teaching and learning that responds to new digital learning environments, research tools, and socio-cultural contexts, ultimately defining the heterogeneous nature of digital pedagogy. You can see the full announcement here: https://github.com/curateteaching/digitalpedagogy/blob/master/announcement.md
Many of you may have heard of this born-digital project under some other names (Digital Pedagogy Keywords) and hashtags (#digipedkit). Since it was born at the MLA convention in 2012 it has been continually evolving. You can trace that evolution, in part, through my earlier presentations: https://rebeccafrostdavis.wordpress.com/tag/curateteaching/
For the future, please follow Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities on Twitter through the hashtag #curateteaching and visit our news page for updates. And if you know of a great pedagogical artifact to share, please help us curate teaching by tweeting it to the hashtag #curateteaching. We’ll be building an archive of those tweets, as well.

Today, I gave a presentation at Washington and Lee University called, “Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Models, Keywords, Prototypes”. The presentation kicked off the digital humanities day of the Winter Faculty Academy at Washington and Lee. I was striving to give my vision of digital pedagogy based on a set of models from liberal arts colleges. Slides are on Slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/rebeccadavis/digital-pedagogy-in-the-humanities-models-keywords-prototypes

Last month, I had the privilege of being part of an excellent conversation about doing digital humanities at community colleges. A group of DH-experts joined community college faculty for an NEH-Office of Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant-funded workshop, “Bringing Digital Humanities to the Community College–and Vice Versa.” Anne McGrail, who organized the event, has now posted the storify:

In Spring 2013, I taught LAT312K: Intermediate Latin at the University of Texas-Austin. This was the fourth and last required course in the Latin sequence at UT and focused on Vergil’s Aeneid. The course functioned both as a cap to a student’s Latin experience (several of my students were graduating seniors finishing off their required courses) and a gateway into advanced study of Latin literature and culture for Classics majors. One of my goals in the course was introducing students to a variety of approaches scholars take to the study of Latin literature in general and Vergil’s Aeneid in particular. This goal allowed me to include a digital humanities element in the course by having my students experiment with digital methodologies. One such assignment focused on text analysis. I include the assignment below, as well as my reflections on how this pedagogical experiment went. « Read the rest of this entry »

During the academic year 2012-2013, I conducted a survey about the motivations and practices of digital humanities at small liberal arts colleges. Last month at the annual Digital Humanities Conference, I shared some results of that survey in a panel session on the Future of Undergraduate Digital Humanities, organized by Brian Croxall and Kate Singer. You can see my slides from that presentation here:
