Pedagogy

Discussion of final Mini-Project - Pedagogical Intervention
  • Pedagogical Intervention (10%) - Drawing upon class readings on pedagogy or simply considering the teaching dimensions of the projects and research methods explored in this class, you will make a pedagogical intervention. You may teach a mini-lesson; create an instructive web exhibit; design a lesson plan; create a course syllabus for digital studies. Other options will be considered; simply write an exploratory blog post and share it with the professor.
  • Note that you may also consult other sources including chapters we did not discuss in the Digital Humanities Pedagogy volume.
  • A colleague just recommended this promising, open-access book Teaching in a Digital Age: Guidelines for Designing Teaching and Learningby A.W. Tony Bates.
