In this webinar, Brandon Locke will present a method of rethinking digital humanities projects in the classroom as extensions of traditional liberal arts and information literacy goals. Through partnerships between disciplinary faculty, librarians, and instructional designers and technologists, classroom digital humanities projects can teach students how to construct arguments in digital spaces, critically produce and consume digital media, and think critically about the collection and use of data and algorithms in many different contexts. Through a few different examples of course projects, this session will address the following questions: What can partnerships between disciplinary faculty and librarians look like? What literacies are valuable in an increasingly digital and data-driven world? How can literacies be seamlessly built into course projects and become a major part of a course?
Brandon Locke is Guest Faculty at the University of Washington iSchool, and was formerly the Director of LEADR, a student-focused digital research lab at Michigan State University.
After the presentation, there will be time for Q&A with Brandon. The session will be recorded and posted publicly after the conclusion of the webinar.
