Rethinking the Digital Experience and the Terms of Digital

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Please join us on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 in the Center for Teaching, Learning & Research, LIB 225, at 12:15 PM.

How do we structure our classrooms and pedagogies around the open web, how do we work at smaller scales, how do we develop a more community-based (reciprocal) approach to the digital for our students?   Will Thomas, Chair of the Department of History at the University of Nebraska and Faculty Fellow of the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities and the John and Catherine Angle Chair in the Humanities, will lead a discussion of these questions.

Lunch will be served.  Please RSVP to dbernier@middlebury.edu by Friday, Dec. 5, 2014.

The Academic Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Research and the Library.
