Mon, Apr 26, 2021 @ 4:00pm - 5:00pm AT
Status: Completed

How do you integrate meaningful DH pedagogy into a short, 13-week undergraduate semester? How can we, as educators, empower students to create and mediate digital content responsibly? What specific skills do students need, and what will they learn?

In this talk, Dr. Chelsea Gardner, Assistant Professor of Ancient History at Acadia University, addresses these questions through the presentation of three case studies that each introduce digital platforms into the undergraduate classroom: Wikipedia Education, Women in Antiquity, and Peopling the Past. These platforms form the basis of classroom assignments that aim to provide students with skills that impart digital literacy and contribute to impactful research through the creation and improvement of globally accessible, open-access resources.   DETAILS
