Quick Hits for Teaching with Digital Humanities

Successful Strategies from Award-Winning Teachers

Quick Hits for Teaching with Digital Humanities: Successful Strategies from Award-Winning Teachers is an edited collection of 24 articles that aims to introduce faculty, administrators, and staff to ways in which digital techniques from the arts, humanities, and social sciences can be incorporated in the classroom. These techniques can enhance learning and professional development experiences for undergraduate and graduate students and faculty alike. This essential handbook illustrates the breadth of digital humanities across the disciplines with rich examples that bring best practices to life. Anyone who teaches at an institution of higher learning will find entry into new digital paradigms. As the authors share simple and complex ways to introduce digital humanities into the classroom, they expand understandings of what constitutes these current technologies for learning.

"At this moment when all of us, suddenly, have become teachers in the digital space, this volume provides the kinds of hands on, practical advice educators need to navigate the complexities of teaching in the digital humanities. Ten years ago, half of the topics covered in these essays wouldn't even be topics of discussion, but today are part of our regular teaching practices. None of us will ever master all aspects of DH teaching, but taken together, the essays in this volume come close."—Mills Kelly, Executive Director of Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and Professor of History, George Mason University

"I'm not sure I can". "I'm not sure my students can."I don't think I'd know where to begin"I don't really see the point, to be honest". Decades after the emergence of digital humanities, the field can still seem daunting to outsiders and integration to teaching projects remains uneven. That's where this book comes in, presenting a variety of ambitious yet accessible, real-life projects to inspire and embolden. A stepping stone to a new dimension."—Géraldine Castel, Lecturer in English LEA (Applied Foreign Languages), Grenoble Alpes University

"Featuring a wide variety of examples from educators from across higher-ed, this Quick Hits volume is as useful to educators looking to develop digital humanities classes as it is to more advanced practitioners interested in integrating the latest tools and approaches. By highlighting field-tested methods in digital humanities teaching, the essays collected here will greatly enrich scholars' ability to enhance their curricular interventions, both conceptually and methodologically."—Marisa Parham, University of Maryland, Director of irLhumanities
