Critical Digital Humanities@Illinois: Scholarly Commons Brown Bag Workshop - Teaching with Digital Humanities, led by Harriett Green

Critical Digital Humanities@Illinois: Scholarly Commons Brown Bag Workshop - Teaching with Digital Humanities, led by Harriett Green

This workshop will provide an overview of how digital humanities tools and resources can be used in undergraduate and graduate courses, particularly in support of student-initiated research.  Harriett Green, English and Digital Humanities Librarian, will draw upon her multiple previous collaborations with Urbana campus instructors to show different ways that students can use digital publishing platforms and digital humanities research tools in coursework and final projects. Tools and platforms such as Omeka, Scalar, Wordpress, and the Voyant text mining tool will be explored in this session, and there also will be group discussion on the concepts of digital pedagogy and digital humanities in the classroom.

Bring your own lunch. Drinks and treats will be provided. 

 

Harriett Green is the English and Digital Humanities Librarian and assistant professor, University Library, at the University of Illinois Library. She collaborates extensively with other University of Illinois faculty on teaching digital publishing to undergraduate and graduate students, including courses in the departments of history, English, media studies, and architecture.
