I will be talking about the NEH CARES funded project on digital pedagogy at City College with adjunct professors from CCNY in a joint panel with the CUNY Graduate Center coordinated by Lisa Rhody, at the CUNY IT Conference Virtual Event, December 3, 2020.
“This panel brings together GC Digital Fellows from The Graduate Center and instructors from City College’s NEH CARES project to showcase approaches to digital humanities pedagogy. Following a brief overview of the challenges faced by each institution, panelists will provide, through lightning talks, tangible examples of DH pedagogy, including lessons learned, tools to consider and curricular materials, and discuss models for building communities of practice at CUNY campuses.”

In the past few months I have been working on building digital pedagogy resources at the City College of New York as part of an NEH-funded project and in my new role as the NEH CARES Digital Humanities Instructional Technologist at the Division of Humanities and the Arts, City College of New York. The project, coordinated by Renata Miller, Deputy Dean of Humanities and the Arts, provides training and support on digital humanities and digital pedagogy to adjunct professors and faculty and instructors in a “Covid-19 instructional environment”. Although not entirely sure I have fully processed the instructional challenges in 2020 myself, it is great being able to work closely with faculty and instructors and get to know more about their concerns and priorities, especially during this time. I created the DHCCNY website as a place to gather resources and training materials on digital humanities and digital pedagogy resources.
The website features information and materials for the NEH CARES DH Workshop series, as well as a range of resources on integrating digital humanities tools and methods in (remote or on campus) classes.
