“How can I better incorporate my own research into the undergraduate courses I teach?”
College and university professors grapple with this question every semester. In this 45-minute webinar, Prof. Keyes will reveal how he adapted two digital humanities projects—drawn from his own research on advertising in early America—into classroom exercises that challenge students to actively “do” history rather than merely learn about the past.
Register to attend this and learn how to:
• develop alternative assignments that engage student interest yet also enhance skills associated with traditional essays
• improve information literacy by identifying and assessing primary sources and secondary sources
• create research projects based on extensive collections of digital primary sources
• avoid pitfalls when developing digital humanities projects for undergraduate students
The webinar will conclude with an open Q & A session, and all registrants will receive a link to the recorded session.
