Following a number of exciting, inspirational sessions on teaching and digital scholarship at the 2015 DLF Forum and Liberal Arts Colleges Preconference, work is underway to form a Digital Library Pedagogy interest group.
Possible areas of discussion include:
- assignments and instructional techniques using digitized and born-digital cultural heritage collections
- emerging digital pedagogy tools and digital humanities projects
- reviewing and sharing scholarly literature on digital teaching and scholarship
- developing best practices for digital project instruction
- training and ongoing skills development for digital instructors
Help us decide where a Digital Library Pedagogy group should go by participating in the conversation. Join our Google Group and our first Twitter chat, on Tuesday January 12, at 8 PM EST/7 PM CST, using the hashtag #DLFteach.
