    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: The Passport Project is an innovative first-year course that asks students to blog about community events representing the arts, humanities, and sciences, along with political events and performances in dance, theater, and music. Peer mentors, recent graduates of the program, lead small group discussions. While geared toward first-year students, the passport model could be easily adapted to a variety of technological platforms and communities or added onto an existing first-year seminar. By encouraging students to identify, early on, not only as members of the campus community but also the broader local community, it could also set up a bookended senior capstone that would engage students more directly in community engagement that complements their disciplinary interests and career goals.
