FACET is excited to announce the release of Quick Hits for Teaching with Digital Humanities: Successful Strategies from Award-Winning Teachers. This publication is an edited collection of 24 articles that aims to introduce faculty, administrators, and staff to ways in which digital techniques from the arts, humanities, and social sciences can be incorporated in the classroom.
These techniques can enhance learning and professional development experiences for undergraduate and graduate students and faculty alike. This essential handbook illustrates the breadth of digital humanities across the disciplines with rich examples that bring best practices to life. Anyone who teaches at an institution of higher learning will find entry into new digital paradigms. As the authors share simple and complex ways to introduce digital humanities into the classroom, they expand understandings of what constitutes these current technologies for learning.
"At this moment when all of us, suddenly, have become teachers in the digital space, this volume provides the kinds of hands on, practical advice educators need to navigate the complexities of teaching in the digital humanities. Ten years ago, half of the topics covered in these essays wouldn't even be topics of discussion, but today are part of our regular teaching practices. None of us will ever master all aspects of DH teaching, but taken together, the essays in this volume come close."
