Our students’ thoughts in the ISSOTL 2013 Conference.
by Jess Chambers, Elon iMedia Class of 2014
Earlier this month, I was fortunate enough to attend the International Society for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL) conference and present at one of the workshops with four of my classmates. Lead by two of our iMedia professors, Phillip Motley and Amanda Sturgill, we attended an all day workshop that focused on using digital humanities for undergraduate education. Though it had a small attendance, its participants include scholars from Vanderbilt and Brown as well as Sweden, the UK and China. The first part of the day featured a demonstration of content rich, research based and process related tools. The workshop concluded by breaking into small groups to discuss how these tools could be adapted for the classroom and there level of usefulness. I’ll put a link to those tools at the bottom of this post for those who are interested.
