Engaging students in the entire process

This goes along with many of the other posts that have mentioned students and the use of digitized resources in teaching, but I thought I might throw another element in. When attempting to get students involved in lessons, stories of the past, etc. it has always proven more effective to involve students from the beginning and make things more hands on. How can we make this happen in the digital humanities front? Have students create oral histories? Create online exhibits to demonstrate understanding? What other ideas do we have? These projects involve collaboration between faculty and archivists/librarians and most importantly students.

  1. I think I must have been working on my proposal as you were writing this. Your idea here fits well with what I just proposed. đŸ™‚ Very important, I think to bring students both into the process and the discussion of the process.
