I’d be interested in talking about DH and Pedagogy – the “training up” of the next generation of DH scholars. At UT Dallas, we have a project in the works in which we will develop tools for sharing, rating, collecting, and evaluating readings and assignments for use in DH and New Media classrooms. The goal of the project is 1) to serve as a resource for people who teach DH–users will be able to search the DB and receive suggestions about materials on the “you may also like” model, 2) to create a persistent archive of essential DH texts and tools, and 3) attempt to bring some of the focus of DH, which has largely emphasized research, to pedagogy (see Kathy Harris’ Blog)
So, some of the things I’d like to talk about:
- What tools do people use in the classroom?
- What “texts” are essential to understanding the history and future of DH?
- What are the essential skills we should be teaching people interested in digital humanities?
- What are the resources people use for teaching, for choosing readings, for designing projects?
