Teaching Circle on Digital Humanities

Ramapo’s Faculty Resource Network is offering a teaching circle this semeser

Using Digital Humanities in the Classroom

One of the richest and fastest-growing areas for teaching, research, and scholarship in the humanities is in what has become known as the Digital Humanities.  The Faculty Resource Center (with the School of Humanities and Global Studies) would like to invite you to join a Teaching Circle devoted to Ramapo’s Digital Humanities Initiative.  Are you interested in incorporating digital tools, digital methods, or technology into your humanities courses?  Participants in this teaching circle will read and discuss the following book: “Using Digital Humanities in the Classroom: A Practical Introduction for Teachers, Lecturers, and Students” by Battershill and Ross (books provided by the FRC). Participants in this Teaching Circle will discuss methods of integrating digital technologies, experiential learning, and visual communication into humanities courses. Members serve as informal “discussion leaders” each week but the conversation is typically guided by the group at large.  

If you would like to join this teaching circle this semester, please click on the link below to register and reserve your book copy by September 23rd   https://www.ramapo.edu/frc/teaching-circles/.  If you do not register by this date, you may not be guaranteed a copy of the book/materials during the first few weeks of the teaching circle.
