ACERT invites you to a day-long event celebrating the faculty and students’ innovative use of digital technology in the classroom. Digital Pedagogy is an emergent term for a big tent and is thus hard to define. It does, of course, involve the use of digital tools in the classroom, but it is more than that: it entails a critical, self-aware use of technology as a means to producing and sharing new knowledge and as an object of study in its own right, since today’s students have always lived in an atmosphere suffused with digital forms and practices. Those interested in a deeper examination of the term can see discussions on Twitter under the #digped hashtag, or the resources gathered at a recent conference devoted to the topic.
The Day of DigPed begins with a prize ceremony honoring innovations by Hunter faculty and students in digital pedagogy: the Digital Assignment Prize for faculty who create the best assignments that use digital pedagogy principles, and the Digital Writing Prize, for the students who submit the best examples of digital writing. Both prizes are accepting applications until April 8.
The prize ceremony will be followed by two events led by Jack Dougherty (Professor of Education, Trinity College). Jack is author of the award-winning More Than One Struggle: The Evolution of School Reform in Milwaukee (University of North Carolina Press, 2004) and has co-written and co-edited several influential open-access volumes on digital humanities scholarship and pedagogy, including Web Writing: Why & How for Liberal Arts Teaching and Learning.
