The Digital Teaching Methods seminar provides a hands-on introduction to several approaches that have been used successfully at Harvard, all grounded in specific pedagogical examples and use cases.
Whether you will be teaching with digital tools for the first time in the coming semester, or have already been doing so for some time, this workshop provides a focused and supportive environment for improving your practice. Tools and techniques covered in the workshop include online exhibitions, annotations, timelines, mapping, multimedia, visualization, and polling/classroom response tools.
Past participants have provided overwhelmingly positive feedback: one said their experience provided "a greater awareness of tools and resources that exist so that I will know where to go to make an assignment possible, and will be more conscious of what is available when I am thinking about designing an assignment," while another said that it offered "a really helpful introduction to a number of digital tools, with the additional benefits of feeling more oriented as to what tools are out there and knowing that there are people that I can reach out to for more help." Another participant has said that they, "will certainly be referring to the tools and resources I learned about in any teaching I may do!"
The seminar will be held remotely via Zoom, and a link will be provided to registrants prior to the event.
