About the Project

In 2020, Musselman Library’s Digital Scholarship Summer Fellowship was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we still wanted to have some sort of high-impact learning experience for our students, and we were able to hire two students to create tutorials in anticipation of needing online learning objects for flipped DH instruction in the 2020-21 academic year.

For 10 weeks in June-August 2020, we met as a group twice a week to discuss how to best teach DH pedagogy, issues in DH, and best practices related to creating pedagogically sound tutorials. Using Basecamp, Zoom, and OneDrive we were able to create a community of practice, leveraging the expertise of the students and librarians, as well as learn new concepts in pedagogy.

The DH Toolkit continues to be added and updated. Please contact R.C. Miessler and Kevin Moore if you have suggestions for additional tools or concepts, corrections, or updates.
