General Editors Rebecca Frost Davis (St. Edward’s University), Matthew K. Gold (CUNY), Katherine D. Harris (San Jose State University), and Jentery Sayers (University of Victoria) have announced Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Concepts, Models, and Experiments. The project is “an open-access, curated collection of downloadable, reusable, and remixable pedagogical resources for humanities scholars interested in the intersections of digital technologists with teaching and learning,” with support from the Modern Language Association. As the announcement details:
Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities is a book in a new form. It will consist of approximately 50 keywords that articulate humanities pedagogy with digital humanities methods, new media studies, computational research, networked environments, and digital culture. Each keyword will have a curator who will briefly introduce a particular term in the context of teaching and learning and then provide ten pedagogical artifacts, such as syllabi, prompts, exercises, lesson plans, and student work drawn from actual courses, classrooms, and projects across the humanities. These artifacts will be annotated, attributed with metadata, and accompanied by lists of related materials for further reading and future reference. After going through an open peer review process, all keyword entries will be published under Creative Commons licenses to encourage circulation, editing, and repurposing by other practitioners.
