Announcing our first Triangle Digital Humanities Institute, focusing on DH pedagogy! For more information, check the TDHN Institute page.
Date: Monday, March 25th, 2019
Venue: John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University
This one-day event aims to build community and skills around digital humanities pedagogy. It will include lightning presentations, roundtables, workshops, and discussion sessions by and for instructors, staff (including, but not limited to, librarians and technologists), and graduate students at universities in the Triangle area. Topics will range from assessing the value of dh pedagogy, presenting classroom case studies, scaling research to fit the classroom, and creating open environments for experimentation to developing collaborative teaching models, designing dh assignments, integrating dh into learning objectives, grading digital projects, and building capacity beyond the individual classroom.
Katherine Faull, Diane Jakacki, and Anne Kelly Knowles will offer feature presentations on their collectively vast pedagogical experiences in digital humanities and related fields. Local presenters will share examples from their own teaching, will foster practical discussions, and will offer resource sharing opportunities. The Institute will be a great opportunity for all those involved in digital humanities instruction to network across departments and institutions.
The Institute is sponsored by the Digital Humanities Initiative at the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University and the Triangle Digital Humanities Network; co-sponsored by Computational Media Arts & Cultures, Digital Scholarship Services, Information Science + Studies, Learning Innovation, and the Wired! Lab for Digital Art History & Visual Culture at Duke University.
This Institute is designed by and for employees and students at Triangle area educational institutions engaging with digital technologies in humanities classrooms as part of Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI) Week 2019 at Duke University. The Institute is offered at no cost to attendees, and free visitor parking will be available. Watch for an invitation to register coming soon & check the TDHN website for updates.
