We are trying an experiment in our new "Introduction to Digital Humanities" course at Hamilton College and attempting to crowd-source and geo-locate information about teaching approaches in the humanities. Our students are asking the question, "Which of the following methodologies are you currently using to teach students in the humanities?"
Our students have created a crowd-map using Ushahidi and we are sending you this linkin hopes that you or your colleagues may be able to provide data for our project:
We will share the results with everyone at the end of the semester in late Dec. Please forward this to anyone you think might be able to provide our students with data.
We thank you in advance! Best wishes for the holidays!
