Description

As an extension of the first workshop, we will focus on integrating digital humanities in the classroom by exploring a variety of digital humanities related resources available at Kansas State University as well as introducing a specific pedagogy intervention, students writing Wikipedia articles for classroom assignments. Often replacing research papers and/or literature reviews, these assignments ask students to practice disciplinary research and writing skills to fill gaps for a public audience.

This workshop will explore the tools available through the Wikipedia Education Program, common assignment design concerns, example assignments run by faculty at Kansas State University in the departments of English and Art, examination of how the program's lessons learned can be applied to other digital assignments, and provide time for developing a Wikipedia assignment for your own classroom.

Examples will be focused on humanities topics, but faculty in all disciplines are welcome.

Stinson's presentation, "DH Student Projects Anyone Can Edit: Planning for and learning from Wikipedia in the Classroom," and Hoeve and Pankl's presentation, "Practicing Digital Humanities in the Classroom," are combined as one file available from the download button.
