Imagining, Learning, and Critical Thinking through Digital Humanities

Conference on Student Learning and Success
May 6-8, 2019
Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI

In the Digital Humanities Pedagogy Learning Community, faculty and graduate students have worked together to develop digital humanities assignments that promote student engagement, deep learning, and creative collaboration. The facilitators and participants in the learning community will lead a workshop that helps attendees think through how digital humanities projects might help their learning goals for their own courses, regardless of discipline. Our approach to this workshop will parallel the interactive, hands-on methods the learning community used at each session throughout the year. The purpose of this workshop is to help faculty across disciplines envision how they might incorporate digital projects in their courses. These projects engage students deeply in developing digital literacies and multi-modal ways of knowing. As students create often public-facing work, they are empowered to participate in larger conversations in society.
