POST: J-Term: Team Engagement Developers 3

Caro Pinto (Mount Holyoke College) discusses her experience co-teaching the course Media Archaeology, Digital Humanities & The Archives, which experimented with the concept of a humanities lab in the classroom. Projects included appraising digital photos, taking apart an iMac, and running programs on a C-64. Pinto also discusses how librarians need to adapt their pedagogical approaches to be successful in such courses:

As librarians working with digital forensics and new media, our role as content providers is given, but our role as engagement developers is an emerging one. In order for complex assignments and experiences to be scaled in undergraduate classrooms, faculty, librarians, and technologists need to team up to make these projects sustainable realities. Librarians are primed to collaborate meaningfully in these teams not just as “content providers but as engagement developers.”
