Description

Since November 2012, with generous support from the W.M. Keck Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Reed College’s department of computing and information services and its library have been working together with faculty members on a project aimed at increasing students’ capacity to engage with digital sources and tools as integral components of the research process. Our session will provide an overview of the project’s goals and how they have been realized through our course-based collaborations; we will then turn to a more focused case study of one new course, “Migration Histories in the British Imperial World,” that was taught at Reed in spring 2017 after almost two years of collaborative planning and design. In this interactive session, we will discuss the successes and challenges of this course and of our collaborative digital scholarship projects in general.
