The Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies will present “Web Culture in the Disciplines” on Thursday, Oct. 12.
The faculty panel discussion is the second of three sessions planned for the annual Digital Liberal Arts series, which showcases UMW’s goal of maintaining its stance as a leader in weaving digital practices throughout the college curriculum.
Chaired by DTLT Instructional Technology Specialist Lee Skallerup Bessette, the panel will discuss when, where and how their disciplines engage with online and digital spaces, and how they help students navigate these evolving landscapes. Participants will tackle such issues as how to engage meaningfully online, their responsibilities as educators and how they help students find their voices online.
Panel members include Associate Professor of Education John Broome; Associate Professor of History and American Studies Will Mackintosh; Professor of Classics, Philosophy and Religion Mary Beth Mathews; Associate Professor of Political Science Chad Murphy; Assistant Professor of Art and Art History Jason Robinson; and Associate Professor of Modern Languages and Literatures Marcel Rotter.
During September’s Digital Liberal Arts series session, DTLT staff members presented “Tool Parade,” introducing a collection of digital tools for classroom use. Next up in the series, on Nov. 15 Lora Taub-Pervizpour, Professor of Media and Communication at Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania, explores how digital media inform critical participation in democratic society.
All Digital Liberal Arts series sessions will be held in the Hurley Convergence Center, Digital Auditorium, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. DTLT live-streams the sessions with a Twitter backchannel on #DoOO. For more information, visit DTLT’s Facebook or Events page.
