    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: A student-curated digital exhibit is a foundational and flexible archival exercise. This lesson plan introduces one digital exhibition platform: Omeka. The lesson provides useful background information, such as definitions of key terms in digital content management and links to Omeka projects and resources. It takes students through the different stages of building an exhibit, from selecting items to identifying them to arranging them—what French describes as a “multimedia essay” that intimately links the exhibition narrative and display to the archival collection. It thus serves as a general introduction to the storytelling and argumentation skills that students develop through the exhibition curation process.
