UF Event: Digital Pedagogy – Discussion & Recommendations from the DHWG, April 8, 12-1:30pm, Pugh Hall 210

Digital Pedagogy – Discussion and Recommendations from the Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG)
8 April 2013, 12:00-1:30pm, Pugh Hall 210
In reflecting upon a series of UF-wide events examining education in the digital age (including the 2013 Grimes Conference in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences on April 1, 3, and 4th and the April 11th Morrill Act Anniversary Symposium), faculty member and graduate students are invited to join us for a discussion of blended and online education from a humanities perspective. What are the challenges to becoming a digital pedagogue in an assessment-driven, academic culture with decreasing budgets? What are the digital literacy expectations for teaching assistants going on the job market, and how are graduate students using their own classrooms as ways to develop digital pedagogy skills and practices? And, how can UF better prepare digital pedagogues to teach in the 21st century? This discussion will be framed and moderated by Laurie Gries and Terry Harpold, faculty members in the UF Department of English. The goal is to produce recommendations and topics for consideration by the university, as well as our own community of practice in the DHWG.
All events from the DHWG and other important events are on the Center for the Humanities & the Public Sphere website: http://www.humanities.ufl.edu/calendar/20130327-DHWG.html
