Digital Humanities Questions & Answers

Digital Humanities Pedagogy - Open Book Publishers Academic institutions are starting to recognize the growing public interest in digital humanities research, and there is an increasing demand from students for formal training in its methods. Despite the pressure on practitioners to develop innovative courses, scholarship in this area has tended to focus on research methods, theories and results rather than critical pedagogy and the actual practice of teaching. The essays in this collection offer a timely intervention in digital humanities scholarship, bringing together established and emerging scholars from a variety of humanities disciplines across the world. Digital Humanities pedagogy broadens the ways in which both scholars and practitioners can think about this emerging discipline, ensuring its ongoing development, vitality and long-term sustainability.

Guidelines for the Evaluation of Digital Scholarship in History Download the Guidelines (PDF) Defining the Challenge The context of historical scholarship is changing rapidly and profoundly. Disciplines and universities that emerged two centuries ago in a profusion of print now find themselves confronted with new digital forms. Historical scholarship is, of course, already digital in many ways. Despite this ferment, broadly accepted guidelines for the professional evaluation of digital scholarship have not yet emerged. The American Historical Association has established this committee to help ensure that our profession acts in far-sighted ways as the digital presence grows. The AHA offers “a broad working definition of digital history” as “scholarship that is either produced using computational tools and methods or presented using digital technologies.” At its heart, scholarship is a documented and disciplined conversation about matters of enduring consequence.

Pour plus de détails sur le sujet, on pourra consulter les différents articles du blog La révolution MOOC. Suivre un MOOC peut être un moyen de compléter ses connaissances dans son domaine de spécialité, d'acquérir une compétence supplémentaire ou simplement d'enrichir sa culture générale.
