CFP: MLA 2012: Electronic Roundtable Demonstrating Digital Pedagogy (3/1/2011, 1/5-8/2012)

Victorianists may be interested in the following, considering that many Digital Humanities projects have come from Victorian-era studies.

Electronic Roundtable Demonstrating Digital Pedagogy
MLA 2012
Seattle, Washington
January 5-8, 2012

Discussions about digital projects and digital tools often focus on research goals. For this electronic roundtable, we will instead demonstrate how these digital resources, tools, and projects have been integrated into undergraduate and graduate curriculum in alignment with the MLA 2012 Presidential Theme: Language, Literature, Learning. Proposals may include demonstrations of:

  • successful collaboration with undergraduates on your digital scholarly project
  • specific assignments, including student learning goals, teaching strategies, successes/failures, grading rubrics
  • integrating digital assignments with general education requirements
  • assessment of student digital projects
  • constructing syllabi with digital-focused assignments
  • portals for collecting digital-focused syllabi and assignments

This Roundtable session will contain up to eight presenters. Presenters will engage in informal discussion or offer interactive electronic demonstrations. Electronic roundtables allow attendees to circulate among eight stations that will be set up around the meeting room with appropriate audiovisual equipment.

Presenters are welcome from a broad range of institutions with a range of contexts and budget demands. Selection of participants will be based on a cross-spectrum of styles, classrooms, student experience, successes, and failures. If possible, we will try to submit two electronic roundtables; however, this is a Special Session not yet accepted by the MLA.

300-word proposals by March 1 to Katherine D. Harris (katherine.harris@sjsu.edu). Please email with questions.
