This is the transcript of the short paper I gave as part of the "Digital Scholarship in Action: Research" panel at MLA 2016 in January . The attendant PowerPoint is stored and indexed on the MLA Commons Open Repository Exchange, and is available here: https://commons.mla.org/deposits/item/mla:667/
This week in my HUMN 100 course we began the TEI module, which will see students tagging individual anecdotes in "Tarlton's Jests" and compiling them into a digital edition. We've been wrestling with some computer problems this term that have made the round-table collaborative nature of last fall's course a bit harder to sustain. Several students have had to work on the lab PCs around the edge of the room, which means their backs are to me, and they're not connecting with one another, either.
Katie Faull and I gave the following presentation last week at DH2015 in Sydney, Australia.
This is an abbreviated form of the talk. The complete version will be published as an article in the near future.
We take our title from Alan Liu’s challenge to DH educators to develop a distinctive pedagogical hermeneutic of “practice, discovery, and community” What does this look like? How do we put this into practice?
This paper focuses on our teaching experience at Bucknell University in the academic year 2014-15 to show how the planning, design, and execution of a new project-based course, Humanities 100, introduced undergraduate students to the world of digital humanities through the use of selected digital tools and methods of analysis.
