The Pedagogy Project

Title Page Graphic - The Pedagogy Project Book, by the HASTAC Scholars


We are so proud and excited to announce the Pedagogy Project!

This project started when several professors asked for specific suggestions on digital or collaborative projects they could do with their students. We asked the HASTAC Scholars to provide specific assignments, in-class exercises and other projects. The response was awesome - over 80 specific and proven suggestions to shake up your syllabus!

The Pedagogy Project is organized into nine sections, with numerous examples of projects, assignments and concepts in each area. Many of the projects overlap into different sections, so take some time to explore each of them!

How to use the Pedagogy Project:

  • Are you currently planning a syllabus? Take a look at the examples of individual and group projects to shake up your assignments and student participation!
  • Are you currently teaching? Take a look at the in-class exercises and methods of assessment. Many can be implemented throughout the semester even if your syllabus has already been finalized.
  • Do you want to submit your OWN example to be included in the Pedagogy Project? Fantastic - please see below on how to submit!
  • Comment! Did you try one of these suggestions? Have questions? We’d LOVE to hear about how it went - comment on the original blog with the results and your own experience will help others in the future.
  • Please share the Pedagogy Project! Post to your listservs, university pedagogy resources, or other networks. We hope these examples will inspire your own pedagogical practice.

How to contribute to the Pedagogy Project:

  • Register on the HASTAC website
  • Post your own blog on HASTAC. Include specific tips and the pedagogical exercise or assignment. This project focuses on TESTED and PROVEN exercises. The goal is to be as concrete and specific as possible. This isn’t the place for vague thoughts about pedagogy - we want specific ideas on how to do something new!
  • Figure out which of the nine categories best represents your exercise.
  • Email the Co-Directors of HASTAC Scholars at with the following information:
  1. Your full name and affiliation
  2. Link to the blog on HASTAC
  3. Which of the 9 categories best fits your exercise or assignment
