Rebecca Frost Davis is the Director for Instructional and Emerging Technology at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX whose works focuses on the intersections of digital pedagogy and liberal education. She is co-editor (with Matthew K. Gold, Katherine D. Harris, and Jentery Sayers) of Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Concepts, Models, and Experiments, an open-access, curated collection, being published by the MLA, of downloadable, reusable, and remixable pedagogical resources for humanities scholars interested in the intersections of digital technologies with teaching and learning. At the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education, she led an initiative to develop digital humanities at liberal arts colleges and co-authored “Should Liberal Arts Campuses Do Digital Humanities? Process and Products in the Small College World” in Debates in the Digital Humanities, edited by Matthew K. Gold, (University of Minnesota Press, 2012). She was a member of the digital working group for AAC&U's General Education Maps and Markers (GEMs) project, serves on the faculty of the AAC&U Institute for Integrative Learning and the Departments, and is a frequent speaker on digital pedagogy, liberal education, and intercampus collaboration.
Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Concepts, Models, and Experiments is an open-access, curated collection of downloadable, reusable, and remixable pedagogical resources for humanities scholars interested in the intersections of digital technologies with teaching and learning. Taken as a whole this collection will document the richly-textured culture of teaching and learning that responds to new digital delivery mediums, scholarly tools, and socio-cultural contexts, ultimately defining the heterogeneous nature of digital pedagogy.
Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities will consist of 50 keywords that articulate humanities pedagogy with new media, computation, networked environments, and digital culture. Each keyword will have a curator who will briefly introduce a particular term in the context of teaching and learning and then provide ten pedagogical resources, such as syllabi, prompts, exercises, and lesson plans drawn from actual courses, classrooms, and projects across the humanities. These resources will be annotated, attributed with metadata, and accompanied by lists of related materials for further reading and future reference. After going through an open peer review process, all keyword entries and their resources will be licensed with Creative Commons to encourage circulation, editing, and repurposing by other practitioners.
In short, Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities will share the everyday stuff of humanities teaching and learning, curated by instructors who are well-versed in the praxis of digital pedagogy.
