New technologies are giving us the opportunity to rethink how we teach our classes. This workshop goes beyond PowerPoint and Blackboard to show how various digital tools and platforms can be successfully incorporated in your course. Featuring a panel of humanists from across campus currently working on digital pedagogy and research projects, "Pedagogy in the Digital Age" provides an easy introduction to how blogs, digital tools for annotation, analyzation, and visualization of source materials, and open-source software can promote student participation, help student research, and foster a collaborative, exciting class atmosphere. Our panelists look forward to fielding your questions and hearing about your own experiences using new technologies in your teaching.
