Looking for an online class this Spring 2014? Why not take “Introduction to Latin America” with Professor Levy (@profjuliette) at UC Riverside. Students from any UC campus can take the course: bit.ly/history75v
And I’m a TA for the course too!
Ever wondered what digital pedagogy is? Want to know what it’s like to teach online?
Wonder no more.
On February 19th, 2014, join us for an introductory session on digital pedagogy.
We will introduce you to what Canvas is and does. We will show you some of the applications that make online teaching as good (and sometimes better) than face-2-face teaching, and we’ll discuss some of the best practices for online education in the physical classroom and in the virtual one.
Location: UC Riverside, Surge 170
Date and time: Wednesday February 19th 4-6PM
This is the first of hopefully many sessions aimed at training graduate students (and anyone else) in digital pedagogies.
Please RSVP to Juliette Levy – firstname.lastname@example.org
Juliette Levy teaches online and face-2-face in the History Department at UCR and at UC Online.
My post at Critical Digital Humanities on a recent workshop: TEI and Markup Fundamentals
On February 13th I attended a workshop on TEI and Markup Fundamentals sponsored by the Graduate Quantitative Methods Program. The workshop was given by Rochelle Gold and Kimberly Hall from the Department of English at UC Riverside.
TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) is a method of encoding texts with markup language for digital representation. TEI markup focuses on rendering the semantic qualities of texts more visible. For example, sentences and clauses can be marked within a text, as well as the lines and features of a poem. This granular level of encoding allows for digital representations of these texts to carry details and information beyond their normal forms, which is valuable for critical interpretation.
