This event is sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence.
This seminar will show you how digital technology is transforming classroom practices for humanities teaching, and how those technologies might benefit you and your teaching. How might the latest tools of computational text analysis, such as text-modeling, mapping and social network analysis, be incorporated into traditional forms of reading and writing? How should multimodal production and editing be taught in the writing program? What new forms of scholarly and pedagogical expertise will these new practices require? Speakers will include four doctoral candidates in the English program: Gerald Jackson, John Knox, Rachel Mann and Anthony Stagliano.
