Teaching the Digital Humanities: Without a Budget

June 3 June 7

Format

in person/face-Ă -face

This course is designed to help educators at institutions without a DH budget. This specifically considers educators at regional state schools, community colleges and other under-funded institutions and adjuncts, graduate students and other precarious members of our community. It is aimed at supporting those who desire to integrate DH into their classroom without institutional financial backing. This course will provide a brief overview of digital humanities technologies, how they can be integrated into the classroom, and why you would integrate them into a classroom. We will focus specifically on free or very low cost technologies that can be easily integrated into the classroom. The course aims to support classrooms and instructors which had not previously included significant DH content. This discussion will have two parts. One aspect will focus on finding free or low-budget DH solutions. The other part will be a discussion on how to gently ease students into these DH approaches and solutions touching on cross-campus partnerships that add depth to students’ understanding of the practical norms of the field. This part of the discussion will draw in particular on the collaborative experience of a librarian and an assistant professor.
