Is a Digital Project Right for My Course?

Teaching: Digital Projects

What is a digital project? How might one be good for my course? As technology, industry, and higher education evolve to meet shifting demands in the skills of future labor, it is critical to cultivate students’ digital skills in addition to discipline-specific content knowledge. In this workshop, we will discuss how to evaluate whether a digital project would work with your syllabus and course objectives. We will provide a framework to help you determine what skills you would like to cultivate in your students. Finally, we will showcase example digital projects to help spark ideas, cultivate a creative path and encourage you to consider your role in designing a digital learning experience.
