Student Education & Development
Questions that need to be addressed to shape this direction
- How can Bamboo develop training programs that will be of optimal use/relevance to faculty's research/teaching, programs that will catch the interest/commitment of humanities researchers, many of whom don't have much experience with IT.
- What does education mean? Marketing? Outreach? Consciousness raising? Teaching and learning?
- What new forms of teaching and learning might Bamboo generate? - challenging model that education comes from faculty down; some might come from students up
- What forms of teaching might get choked out by this initiative?
- Desire to be careful about language used to frame the activity
- Shift from education/training to mentoring/outreach/communication
- Graduate student education and outreach to faculty colleagues
- Can we develop a rich, attractive dig hum culture by mainstreaming e-scholarship methods, practices and educational opportunities into traditional disciplines
- Easier for scholars whose work is primarily methodological to engage with digital humanities, vs. those doing interpretive work
- What forms should education/training/outreach take?
- Through what processes will B help people discover each other/tools/resources?
- What would training look like? Most effective form? Should PB specialize or generalize?
- Who should PB be training? Every faculty/student? Admin? IT staff? Collaborators?
- Relationship between education and research.
- How do we create a method that encourages multi-directional flow of teaching and learning, colleague to colleague? (In some of the language, suggests faculty need to learn stuff from technologists/librarians; there needs ot be learning going in multiple directions)
