Audience: Members who had applied for and were accepted into this workshop in March.
Digital methods have become much in demand in digital research.They can be used to mean different things to students in different courses, and can teach them a range of digital skill sets. A number of faculty members, librarians and IT staff in AMICAL institutions have integrated digital methods of analysis and tools in their teaching or in their supportive role for faculty and students. The following session will be an opportunity for them to share their experiences of integrating digital methods and applications in their teaching and scholarship as well as find opportunities to network and collaborate to develop their work with AMICAL members in the field.
The first part of this session will engage the participants in a conversation about the different digital methods and applications they used in their teaching, suggestions for pacing and integrating the methods in their courses, the affordances and limitations that digital applications offer to students, how they prepared their students to engage in digital assignments and report on their findings, and how they assessed these assignments.
The second part will allow participants to make connections with each other to work together to develop collaborative assignments/projects/digital activities that they will integrate into their teaching in the near future.
Participants are required to fill out an application form to attend and participate in this session. Priority will be given to applicants who:
- have incorporated digital tools and methods in their courses and/or work
- have an interest in collaborating with other AMICAL colleagues
