We’re launching our DEFCon Speaker Series on Monday, February 28th at 5pm Eastern with a talk by Dr. Jennifer Guiliano, author of the forthcoming A Primer for Teaching Digital History: 10 Design Principles (Duke UP, 2022).
“Teaching for a Digital Ethnic Future: Strategies for Syllabi, Classrooms, and Curriculum”
What does it mean to build towards a digital ethnic future? How do we incorporate social justice oriented pedagogy in our syllabi, classrooms, and curriculum? This talk highlights examples from digital humanities that incorporate social justice in the classroom. It provides principles and opportunities to guide your development as a teacher and facilitator. And, as importantly, it provides the opportunity to discuss with one another the variety of digital ethnic futures we might encourage in our students.
