Further details on workshop

  • The workshop will allow established and recent DH programs and educational initiatives to report on their experiences, allowing us to form a diverse community of pedagogues to critically discuss topical issues relating to DH education. The DHNB venue encourages participation by teachers, researchers and developers from different perspectives

  • As the sixth workshop on education at DHNB, this year this workshop will focus on higher education in DH, aiming at pedagogical development and infrastructure building. Workshop participants will share their DH teaching experiences, including discussions of strategies, tools, platforms, evaluations, outcomes, and problems.

  • The workshop will also explore a series of initiatives from the DHNB Higher Education Working Group intended to enable collaborative education among fellow universities with DHSS/DHCH programmes/courses/modules. Currently, there are three primary initiatives the Higher Education Working Group which we will address in the workshop’s main session: (1) DHSS/DHCH course exchanges, (2) project-based education, and (3) DHSS/DHCH instruction seminars

  • The intended audience of this workshop are course instructors and programme managers for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences (DHSS) and Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (DHCH) programs; researchers working on DHSS/DHCH education; professionals interested in DHSS/DHCH program, courses, or modules.
