2018 Digital Research & Teaching Symposium

Digital Research and Teaching Symposium
featuring Undergraduate Digital Research and Innovative Pedagogy

This event will showcase the independent, digital research and classroom work of undergraduate students alongside the innovative assignment design and pedagogical experimentation of faculty and graduate students.

Join us in the morning to focus on undergraduate digital research and in the afternoon for an in-depth discussion about new methods in active and engaged pedagogy. Both sessions will feature formal presentations and an open digital poster session. Participants are encouraged to join us for the morning and/or afternoon to see examples of undergraduate, graduate, and faculty work and to learn more about innovations in research and teaching happening on our campus.

Lunch will be included for participants and registered attendees

Co-sponsored by The Humanities Institute, the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, and The Digital Scholarship Commons (University Library).

CALL FOR DIGITAL POSTERS IS NOW OPEN

UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH + COURSE WORK | Submit your proposal here.

We invite all undergraduate students engaged in creative, critical research using digital tools and platforms to submit proposals for a Digital Poster Session. As part of the larger symposium, the Digital Poster Session provides an opportunity for students to display their work and invite one-on-one conversation without a formal presentation. 

The Digital Poster Sessions allows students to highlight the interactivity of their work by presenting live digital projects and we encourage you submit live projects or project prototypes when possible. Classroom work is welcome: you can submit a proposal for individual or group work as long as all authors are represented on the project. 

Proposals are due by April 30. You will be notified about participation in early May.

 

GRADUATE INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGY WORK | Submit your proposal here.

We invite all graduate students to submit INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGY PROJECTS or TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS meant to inspire undergraduate learning around digital technologies or public engagement. As part of the larger symposium, the Digital Poster Session provides an opportunity for students to display their work and invite one-on-one conversation without a formal presentation. 

Proposals are due by April 30. You will be notified about participation in early May.
