Hey Dickinsonians, please join us in the Media Center for a NITLE webinar with the great Rebecca Frost Davis!
Rebecca Frost Davis, one of the general editors of The Digital Pedagogy Reader and Toolkit, will give an overview of this born-digital publication. Seminar participants will contribute to the project, which is aimed at aggregating digital tools used by adventurous practitioners and presenting pedagogical projects in their original forms.(Times EDT)
How have new digital methods, tools, and networks changed pedagogy? How should we define such digital pedagogy? What trends and practices in digital pedagogy cross disciplines? The Digital Pedagogy Reader and Toolkit, a born-digital publication with Rebecca Frost Davis, Matthew K. Gold, Katherine D. Harris, and Jentery Sayers as general editors, will aggregate the digital tools with which adventurous practitioners are experimenting and present pedagogical projects in their original forms. As part of the project, a group of experienced practitioners will curate sections around important keywords, such as “remix, “play,” “collaboration,” “race,” and “failure.” Taken together these significant terms define a new pedagogy for a digital age. For each keyword, curators will assemble a group of artifacts of innovative teaching and learning by highlighting particularly effective tools and pedagogical strategies, while incorporating examples of the resulting student work. This seminar will give an overview of digital pedagogy organized by keyword, illustrate the concept by looking at potential artifacts for one keyword, and invite the audience to contribute to this project by suggesting other keywords and artifacts.
