Digital Humanities Pedagogy Workshop

The Digital Humanities Pedagogy Workshop is a year-long, collaborative learning experience dedicated to supporting graduate students in the development of digital humanities skills and pedagogical practices. The workshop comprises critical discussions on pedagogy, hands-on tool learning, presentations from guest faculty speakers, and course conceptualization. Over the course of the year, participants create assignments using digital platforms and, by year's end, will have completed the design of a course syllabus.

Hosted by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Digital Humanities Pedagogy Workshop will be co-convened by graduate student Liz Laurie (Interdisciplinary Program in Theatre and Drama) and Samantha Botz (English) and advised by Josh Honn (Digital Humanities Librarian).


The 2020-2021 Digital Humanities Pedagogy Workshop schedule will be posted soon!
