Critical Digital Pedagogy at the University of North Texas

October 14, 2016 § Leave a comment

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 »

September 18, 2015 § Leave a comment

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 »

Engaged Learning in Digital Culture, Susquehanna University

August 26, 2015 § Leave a comment

This morning, I am speaking at Susquehanna University as part of their workshop on “Digital Tools for Liberal Arts Pedagogy”.

Engaged Learning in Digital Culture

How do we engage learners in the context of our globally-networked, data-driven, participatory digital culture?  Not by moving the lecture hall online.  Instead, we must create a curriculum that builds our students’ abilities to apply their learning to complex problems in the context of that culture.  Students must practice analyzing, transferring, and integrating their learning using digital data, tools, and approaches to solve unscripted problems. This talk will present a vision for a liberal arts curriculum that scaffolds self-directed, digitally-augmented problem-solving from introductory to capstone level courses.

Surveying Digital Humanities at Small Liberal Arts Colleges

August 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

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:
