Using Digital Humanities in the Classroom: A Practical Introduction for Teachers, Lecturers, and Students


This site is a web companion for the book, Using Digital Humanities in the Classroom: A Practical Introduction for Teachers, Lecturers, and Students (Bloomsbury 2017). It is available in hardback, paperback, and ebook (ePub and pdf) formats as of October 5, 2017. 

The website can also be used as a free, stand-alone resource since it gathers links, tips and articles on topics related to teaching with digital humanities tools, ideas, and methods. The book and the website are both designed to be introductory in nature: they're intended to open up the field of digital humanities as it pertains to the classroom. We focus primarily on the practical, everyday things that might help you and your students have exciting and rewarding pedagogical experiences. Enjoy! We plan to update this companion every year in September, so if you have suggestions of articles, links, tips, tricks, or other things you think we should add, please feel free to contact us with your recommendations!
