Supported by a Mellon Planning Grant, Austin College put together an interesting program for their Digital Humanities Colloquium, February 19-21, 2013. My talk offered ideas for using Digital Humanities in the classroom by highlighting screwing around (Ramsay), failure, playfulness (Callois), bloom & fade assignments (~Nowviskie), and doing the risky thing (Fitzpatrick).
During this afternoon’s post-lunch discussion, one of the organizers, Elena Olive revealed that advice she got while attending the pedagogy session I hosted at the MLA 2012 pre-convention DH Commons session was helpful: don’t revise every class into a DH course; do ONE thing, ONE assignment. Hooray!
