DH Lab Teaching Fellow and Linked Teaching Teams Award 2020

Digital Humanities Lab Teaching Fellows and Linked Teaching Teams Award

Application deadline: June 5, 2020

The DH Lab Teaching Fellows Award provides an incentive for faculty, instructors, and teaching assistants to share innovative assignments that integrate digital humanities tools and methods. These assignments reflect specific goals related to engaging digital/multi-modal forms of expression, and certainly may be incorporated into either an in-person or an online class. Applicants can apply as individuals or in teams of two (Linked Teaching Teams). Each fellow will be awarded a $500 incentive.

For individual applicants: Fellows will be expected to include an assignment incorporating DH tools and methods in a class they are teaching for the Fall 2020 semester, to share their experience through a panel discussion in the DH Lab in Spring 2021, and to document their assignment, resources, and learning outcomes to be shared on the DH Lab website.

For teams of two: Linked Teaching Teams are defined here as two instructors from different departments teaching two different classes that are informally “linked” through collaborative interventions that enrich the learning experiences and outcomes of each class. For the purpose of the DH Lab Teaching Fellows award, these interventions would include the use of DH tools and methods across those classes during the Fall 2020 semester. Teams will be expected to share their experience through a panel discussion in the DH Lab in Spring 2021, and to document their assignments, resources, and learning outcomes to be shared on the DH Lab website.

Eligibility

UWM faculty, teaching academic staff, and graduate teaching assistants are eligible for the awards.
