The National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education presents webinar: Digital Pedagogy Keywords

The National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education presents

Dr. Rebecca Frost Davis on
Digital Pedagogy Keywords

This NITLE webinar takes place on Wednesday May 15, at 2:00 p.m. (EDT). The fee to attend is $100 per connection.

We encourage faculty, instructional technologists, librarians and others interested in exploring the impact of innovative digital tools and methods on teaching and learning to attend this seminar in institutional teams if possible.



How have new digital methods, tools, and networks changed pedagogy? How should we define such digital pedagogy? What trends and practices in digital pedagogy cross disciplines? The Digital Pedagogy Reader and Toolkit, a born-digital publication with Rebecca Frost Davis, Matthew K. Gold, Katherine D. Harris, and Jentery Sayers as general editors, will aggregate the digital tools being experimented with by adventurous practitioners and present pedagogical projects in their original forms. As part of the project, a group of experienced practitioners will curate sections around important keywords, such as “remix, “play,” “collaboration,” “race,” and “failure.” Taken together these significant terms define a new pedagogy for a digital age.  For each keyword, curators will assemble a group of artifacts of innovative teaching and learning by highlighting particularly effective tools and pedagogical strategies, while incorporating examples of the resulting student work. This seminar will give an overview of digital pedagogy organized by keyword, illustrate the concept by looking at potential artifacts for one keyword, and invite the audience to contribute to this project by suggesting other keywords and artifacts.
