Bok Center Winter Teaching Week

Winter Teaching Week is a series of intensive workshops offered during J-Term in conjunction with January@GSAS for graduate student teachers at every stage, from just starting out to looking toward the job market. These workshops feature specialists from the Bok Center and other units at Harvard and span a variety of subject areas, including teaching fundamentals, public speaking, professional development, and more!

As part of the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning's 2018 Winter Teaching Week, you're invited to join Academic Technology, the Harvard Library, and the Digital History program for a one-day workshop on the use of digital tools and methods in the classroom! The workshop will provide 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, and mapping. 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."

The seminar is free and lunch is provided. Registration is required.
