UF’s 2nd Annual Digital Humanities Day (part of Interface 2013)
Thursday April 25th, 2013 (reading day)
8:15am to 4:30pm, Smathers Library East (1A) or online
*breakfast, lunch, and coffee/snacks to be provided
The Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere and UF Smathers Libraries are again partnering with Academic Technology to present the Second Annual Digital Humanities Day as part of the 2013 Interface Faculty Seminar. Interface is the University of Florida conference providing demonstrations, discussion, and peer networking focused on improving teaching and learning by deploying innovative pedagogy using new and emerging technologies.
This year’s theme is “Learning On-and Off-line: “Reading, Reflecting, Displaying, and Doing.” This year’s keynote speaker will be Curtis Bonk, Professor of Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University. He has published widely on “blended learning” as a way to combine traditional and digital technologies for conveying disciplinary knowledge and building critical thinking skills in the disciplines.
We have organized a stream of Digital Humanities talks throughout the Interface events to link this conversation about pedagogy to research advances in the humanities disciplines (including visualization, digital curation, and immersive environments). These talks will again take the format of “lightning rounds” – short demonstrations of technology use and projects – followed by a thirty-minute ‘break-out’ period for intimate discussion with the presenters. The program with full presentation names/titles will be online next week.

Interface 2013 is sponsored by the Technology Innovations Advisory Committee, the Office of Academic Technology, The Center for Humanities and the Public Sphere (through the Digital Humanities Working Group), and the UF Smathers Libraries.
