Presentations
 
Assessing Failure: Specifications Grading for Digital Pedagogy
Mackenzie Brooks
Washington and Lee University, United States of America
 
The DH community values the concept of “productive failure." But how do we model and reward this concept for students in the confines of a course? This presentation will describe an alternative grading system known as “Specifications Grading” and its use in two iterations of an undergraduate DH course.
 
 
Exploring How and Why Digital Humanities is Taught in Libraries
Brian Croxall(1), Jessica Otis(2), Hannah Standing Rasmussen(3)
1: Brown University, United States of America; 2: Carnegie Mellon University, United States of America; 3: Projection North
 
In 2016-17 we conducted a preliminary study on how digital humanities is taught in libraries. We present the results of this study, focusing on the unique and shared experiences we uncovered. We also seek feedback on our methods and survey instruments prior to launching our next round of research.
 
 
Take a Hammer to your Hard Drive: Facilitating Metacognition among Humanities Graduate Students
Kate Joranson, Nicole Scalissi, Alison Langmead, Kiana Jones, Aaron Brenner
University of Pittsburgh, United States of America
 
Reflecting on the role of digital tools and methods is key to a humanities graduate student’s education, yet such metacognition is not embedded in the pedagogies shaping their experience. Join this discussion with librarians, faculty, and graduate students on developing shared metacognitive practices, exploring collective and individual relationships to technology.
