How do we assess student engagement in the digital humanities and find new strategies for captivating students in the classroom? In what ways can we creatively utilize pedagogical tools in the digital classroom? What resources are available to digital humanist teachers at the UC Berkeley campus? And how can we foster communities for sharing new digital humanities innovations and best practices? These are some of the questions that our pedagogy panel leaders will engage with in their presentations and discussions. 


Quantifying Discourse

In recent online courses, we found that grades and the novel engagement index are radically different ways of assessing the transformative experiences of students associated with courses and studying. The contrasts between these assessment methods lead to fundamental questions about the meaning of education and institutional validation, and show a path toward collaborative learning.
