Digital Humanities: Tutorials and Teaching Resources
The CUNY Guide is a collaboratively written wiki that focuses on introducing students to Digital Humanities projects and resources. It focuses on generating new introductory content as well as allowing for communication between colleagues, instructors, and students regarding materials, methods, and lessons. The resource guide has a variety of introductory material for the digital humanities, while the wiki has a large archive of discussions regarding the usage of technology in the classroom.
An online resource based on the Introduction to Digital Humanities course at University of California, Los Angeles that is meant to provide introductory materials useful to students beginning coursework in Digital Humanities. No background knowledge of technology is expected from students, allowing for a user-friendly, self-driven learning experience. The syllabus and lesson plans are provided online, as well as useful in-class exercises. There is a "Tutorials" sections that provides in-depth exercises on data visualization, text analysis, and programming. There is also a "Student Projects" section that showcases individual learners' progress from coursework.
This website has the goal of providing the intellectual and strategic scaffolding to help researchers successfully complete their projects. It contains a large amount of useful information for people new to digital humanities or for practitioners interested in gaining new skills. Under the “Lectures” section it contains large sets of Powerpoint presentations with audio on different topics, including “Discovering the digital humanities” and “Designing your first project”. There is also a “News” section and a “Readings” section with recommended readings. “Downloads” provides examples of grant applications and potentially useful templates. This website is highly recommended for people beginning research in the DH field.
There are innumerable “Getting Started with DH” guides, but since they often attempt to consider all the options, they can be a little overwhelming. This guide has no pretense to fairness! These are only my favorite, go-to tools and resources: the list that I run through in my head when someone is describing a project idea or request for help to me. The emphasis is on the pragmatic; for a more conceptual introduction, see Burdick et al.,
This site is a web companion for the book. It can also be used as a free, stand-alone resource since it gathers links, tips and articles on topics related to teaching with digital humanities tools, ideas, and methods. The book and the website are both designed to be introductory in nature: they're intended to open up the field of digital humanities as it pertains to the classroom. The authors focus primarily on the practical, everyday things that might help you and your students have exciting and rewarding pedagogical experiences. Enjoy! They plan to update this companion every year in September, so if you have suggestions of articles, links, tips, tricks, or other things you think we should add, please feel free to contact them with your recommendations!
