Propose a Boot Camp for THATCamp

We invite proposals for 2.5-hour interactive bootcamp workshops that will inspire humanists in a variety of disciplines to find ways to invigorate their teaching and research through the use of digital technology. Bootcamps should be hands-on, practical, concrete, and leave participants feeling that they can go out and use what they have learned. We encourage topics that will expand the boundaries of teaching and research methods both formally and intellectually.

Topics may include but are NOT limited to:

  • Locative Media and GPS technologies
  • Gaming
  • Text Markup/Encoding
  • Social Media
  • Digital Media Arts
  • Re-envisioning the classroom, library, or teaching environment
  • Programming
  • Graphic/information design (How we can design information so that it is easily read/understood?)
  • Creating a Website
  • Web-Based Pedagogies
  • Web-Based Assessment
  • Smart-Phones and Mobile Devices
  • Technology and Interpretive Methods

 

How do I propose a Boot Camp?

First, you need to register for THATCamp at http://buffalo2015.thatcamp.org/register/. Next you can write up your proposal in about 350-750 words (include links and graphics if you like) and email it to <moc.liamg@nagennifhe> The THATCamp committee will review it and will contact you with any questions or suggestions, and will let you know promptly if your proposal has been accepted.
