Building a Support Structure for Digital Humanities Research Projects in the Classroom
February 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST| Free
This workshop will be a hands-on experience in which participants learn about the different aspects of support necessary for planning and implementing digital humanities research projects in the classroom. The session will be structured in a jigsaw format that puts participants in teams, assigns them functional roles (faculty member, student, instructional designer, librarian, technical staff), and presents them with one of two actual classroom research scenarios. New groups will then be assembled by roles for a brief information and coaching session from representatives of each of the functional groups who have experience in digital research projects. After the coaching session, the original groups reassemble and members share what they’ve learned as they articulate a brief statement of approach to their assigned scenario. Participants will gain hands-on experience structuring collaboration to produce learning.
