Katherine D. Harris deposited Play, Collaborate, Break, Build, Share: ‘Screwing Around’ in Digital Pedagogy in the group Digital Ethnic Futures Consortium (DEFCon) on Humanities Commons 6 months ago
Digital Humanities has become a “hot” topic in academia over the last few years (as of 2012), primarily in research and scholarship. While many push forward into new realms of using technology to articulate cool findings, others at non research intensive universities are moving forward with engaging their undergraduate students in var ious forms of Digital Pedagogy, a facet of Digital Humanities. Single day bloom and fade projects, individual assignments, and larger scaffolded projects all comprise Digital Humanities curriculum. Here, I provide examples of all three types of projects an d include a discussion about risk, play, and productive failure to situate my type of pedagogy in a non research intensive university setting.
