Digital Scholarship

Digital scholarship broadly involves moving traditional research, teaching, and learning into an open, web-connected environment. It can also involve having students present research in non-traditional ways.

Some resources for those interested in learning more about digital scholarship:

  • Digital Humanities Toolkit - This is a resource for those beginning work in digital humanities.
  • DiRT Directory - The DiRT Directory is a registry of digital research tools for scholarly use. DiRT makes it easy for digital humanists and others conducting digital research to find and compare resources ranging from content management systems to music, OCR, statistical analysis packages to mind mapping software.

If you are interested in exploring ways you can enhance current, or create new assignments to allow students to present their work in new ways please contact Jedidiah.

Blended Learning

What is blended learning?
According to Educause blended learning is a combination of, "traditional face-to-face classroom instruction with online learning." Examples of blended learning are combinations or face-to-face instruction and discussions in an online forum, testing in an online venue outside of regular class time, or web conferencing. This model incorporates the idea of flipping the traditional teaching model. For more about blended learning and flipped learning please see the following resources:

The college supports two main platforms that may be used to create a blended learning environment, Moodle and Google Classroom. There are many tools in each platform that may be used in support of a blended learning environment. The instructional technologist can assist you in matching a specific, appropriate tool in support of the learning objectives in your courses.
