Winter 2015 Pedagogy Lab

Pedagogy Lab Banner

Welcome back!

All faculty and staff are invited to join DigLibArts for our semi-annual Pedagogy Lab, taking place on January 25th, 2016, from 1pm to 5pm in the DigLibArts Collaboratory in Wardman Library.

This is an excellent opportunity to dialogue with and learn from your faculty peers in an environment designed to facilitate discussions about teaching on our campus. Much of the day will be organized in the form of a THATCamp or Digital Humanities Unconference, so bring your questions, concerns, and ideas!
