Dr. Sean McCarthy - talk and workshop - "Valuing the Digital Humanities in the Liberal Arts Classroom”

Dr Sean McCarthy

The digital humanities is gaining ground internationally but has only recently begun to make a significant impact in the undergraduate classroom. This workshop reports on how the digital humanities has grown on a mid-sized liberal arts campus through an institute for training faculty in digital humanities pedagogy. Specifically, it will focus on four particular values — critical thinking, collaboration, production, and openness — that are valuable in steering students and teachers to design and undertake undergraduate digital humanities projects in a variety of disciplinary contexts.
