Spiralling: teaching undergraduate digital literary studies

Gregg, S.H (2016) Spiralling: teaching undergraduate digital literary studies. In: Digital Humanities Congress 2016: Teaching Undergraduate Digital Literacy Studies, 8 - 10 September 2016, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK.

Abstract

Stephen’s talk concerned the practice of teaching digital literary studies to undergraduate students, using it as a case study on digital pedagogy and the digital humanities. He discussed English literature students’ experience of technology in the classroom and the meaning of digital humanities as it’s deployed by both scholars and university managers. He also highlighted the relationship between a discipline and the digital - from both an academic’s and a student’s point of view, which is very different from the kind of learning technology that tends to manage students, rather than a pedagogy that enables students to become creators. Stephen also argued for a tactical pedagogy that focuses on small-scale praxis, with a focus on building and enabling connections between academic colleagues, academics and students, and students and the world beyond the institution.
