Digital Humanities and Social Sciences InstituteLocation: Carrier TLTDates: Fridays Jan 24 - Feb 28Registration is now closed.
How might we use digital technologies to spark innovation in our classrooms and at the same time build upon the core skills and pedagogies within our disciplines? This six-week institute explores this question by introducing instructors in the humanities and social sciences to an array of theories, methods, and technologies associated with the digital humanities.
Through readings, discussion, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops, participants will:
- Become more conversant with digital humanities methodologies and pedagogies;
- Gain working knowledge of popular digital tools such as Wordpress, Twitter, and cloud-based collaboration technologies; and
- Learn the basics of video production and post-production.
With the help of the instructors, CIT staff and CFI faculty, and fellow institute members, participants will mobilize digital humanities tools and methodologies to design a fully realized assignment (including a detailed description, grading rubric, and timeline) for one of their classes. Participants who meet institute expectations will receive a $400 stipend.
