PCCC-Ramapo Experiential Learning and Digital Humanities Conference

Passaic County Community College and Ramapo College will hold an Experiential Learning and Digital Humanities Conference, January 26, 2024, from 10am-5pm @Pavillion 1, Ramapo College

Professors from Passaic County Community College and Ramapo College presented class projects they carried out in the Fall 2023 semester in a one day conference.

These professors worked over two semesters as members of Experiential Learning Community of Practice and/or Digital Humanities Community of Practice sponsored by PROSPER Grant to develop and implement hands-on engagement aspects in their class projects. These Communities of Practice also encouraged collaboration among their members, creating multi- disciplinary, multi-campus, and multi-layered class projects, which have been a great success in engaging students and local communities. Professors will present details of their class projects, some with their students, and further discuss their future projects that can be open for new collaboration. For questions, contact Neriko Doerr (ndoerr@ramapo.edu).
