Yesterday and today I’ve been at the University of North Texas as part of their Critical Digital Pedagogy faculty mentoring community. Last night, I gave a talk I’ve delivered multiple times, “Designing for Agency in the Emerging Digital Ecosystem”. I include a link to the slides and works cited below. This morning I am teaching a workshop on Digital Liberal Arts with the goal that participants will construct their own assignment. These events are important precursors the the institution wide-engagement needed to transform the curriculum and intentionally multiple high-impact assignments that gives students repeated practice partnering with technology to solve unstructured problems (complex problems to which there is not a clear answer). « Read the rest of this entry »

Today, I’m speaking at Smith College about how we can build liberal arts capacities in our emerging digital ecosystem, which is shaped by networks and driven by data. This ecosystem requires the same liberal arts capacities, but we need to develop and practice them in new contexts. I provide the slides from my talk below, as well as a list of references for the model assignments I am sharing. In addition, the reference section contains pointers to more examples and sources for pedagogical advice the method in question. « Read the rest of this entry »

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.

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:
