This seminar will show you how digital technology is transforming classroom practices for humanities teaching, and how those technologies might benefit you and your teaching. How might the latest tools of computational text analysis, such as text-modeling, mapping and social network analysis, be incorporated into traditional forms of reading and writing? How should multimodal production and editing be taught in the writing program? What new forms of scholarly and pedagogical expertise will these new practices require?
