The 2013 Digital Humanities conference may include a panel on The Future of Undergraduate Digital Humanities. That's us! Here are some great questions from Brian Croxall and Kate Singer's proposal invitation that would be a great springboard for us to talk about... maybe a small group of HASTAC Scholars could collaboratively author a post on one or more questions, and/or interview one of the authors about their prospective panel?
- What are best practices for project-based, research approaches in the undergraduate classroom?
- What are the most important trends and practices in digital pedagogy across disciplines?
- What departmental / university infrastructure and support are necessary for a digital humanities undergraduate curriculum?
- Should undergraduate digital humanities work primarily consist of a computational means of studying humanities or a means of studying digital culture?
- Is digital humanities a methodology or a topic of study? How can the two approaches be best integrated in the undergraduate classroom?
- How do we integrate both digital humanities as a computational praxis and also digital culture as a topic of study?
- How do we redesign curricula to incorporate both dh courses and incursions into traditional disciplines?
- How might we envision curricula to be redesigned in the future with digital tools and digital critical thinking in mind?
- Is digital humanities something that should be based within particular departments? Or is it something that should be taught across all humanities undergraduate departments?
- How can we prepare students for work at the graduate level?
- How does digital pedagogy sit under the big tent of digital humanities?
