New digitally-enabled methodologies such as curating, collaborating, manipulating and visualizing data, mapping, text analysis, crowdsourcing, etc., are changing the process of scholarship in the humanities and social sciences while making it feasible to design project-based learning experiences that integrate students into the research process, develop 21st century literacies, and scaffold student creativity.
The NAC&U Digital Scholarship Workshop at St. Edward’s University from October 19-21 will bring together faculty and support staff who are interested in engaging undergraduate students in digital scholarships. Workshop participants will explore ways in which they can incorporate digital tools, methods, and modes of publication into their courses and research as well as discuss the potential of developing one or more cross-institutional collaborative projects.
If you are interested, please contact your institution’s provost. For more information, please visit our event page.
