Are you teaching in the Spring of 2020 and would like to develop your syllabus with digital resources? Then this course may be for you.

As the disciplines of arts and humanities get access to more data – through social media, digitized archives, more accessible statistics, new ways of collecting data, etc. – the demands of what we should teach our students change. In collaboration with CUDiM and Center for Humanities Computing Aarhus, Digital Arts Initiative runs The Digital Curriculum for teachers at Arts, Aarhus University, with the purpose of helping teachers to expand the portfolio of subject specific digital tools.

The course consists of a combination of workshops, seminars, sparring, and follow up on classroom use. The course kicks off with a workshop on August 15, 2019 (see program here) that is open for all and continues with one-day seminars in October and December as well as individual sparring in November and January.

The course is open to 15-20 participants, primarily from Arts, Aarhus University. Each participant will be granted a compensation of 30 hours in their time sheet. During the course the participants will develop course elements based on their own field, which can be used in teaching in Spring 2020 (or in some cases in the Fall of 2020).

The Digital Curriculum is made possible thanks to a grant from IT Vest. It will be coordinated by head of Digital Arts Initiative, Professor Mads Rosendahl Thomsen, in collaboration with Associate Professor Christian Dalsgaard, CUDiM. The Center for Humanities Computing Aarhus are represented by Associate Professor Kristoffer L. Nielbo, who will assist with staff for technical support during the education. Visiting professor Matthew Wilkens, University of Notre Dame, will also take part in the course.

Applications for The Digital Curriculum are made by sending name, department, title of the course you will be teaching, and 5-8 lines, explaining the ideas for and challenges of integrating digital methods in the course to emi@cc.au.dk before August 10, 2019. Feel free to contact us for any question you may have.
