Starting from Scratch: Building Undergraduate-Centered #DH Programs at DH2015 in Sydney, Australia, June 29th to July 3rd, 2015
As Digital Studies, Humanities and Liberal Arts grow as fields, institutions are beginning to build digital curricula centered on undergraduate education. These programs are often driven by interest in digital scholarship and the unique needs of each particular institution. As a result, they develop in many and varied ways, alternately incorporating classes on digital methods, digital culture, instructional technology, libraries and archives, and “traditional” fields ranging from English to history to computer science to anthropology. This diversity has led to an exciting array of undergraduate digital studies programs, but questions remain about how to systematically integrate critical pedagogy, new teaching methods, and new ways of interacting with our students to the practice of digital studies.
