Remote Teaching with Primary Sources and Digital Objects (Teaching with the Library Series)
Online encounters with special collections materials, objects, and primary sources can be surprisingly engaging for students, thanks to the creativity and dedication of Harvard's special collections librarians, archivists, research librarians, and technologists. These experts will share ways they can help you, from digitization and 3-D surrogates to custom videos, Canvas integrations, live Zoom sessions, research guides, publishing platforms, and learning activities designed to encourage in-depth exploration of the materiality of these sources. Come and discuss your ideas with them.
This workshop is part of the Teaching with the Library series, and is intended for Harvard faculty teaching remotely; teaching fellows are also welcome to attend.
This is an online event: Please register to receive the Zoom link in advance of the workshop. Registered attendees will receive the Zoom link one hour prior to the workshop.
I’m here to support your work with emerging computational methods, engaging learning spaces, and a campus-wide network of technological expertise. My personal research interests include 3D technologies (e.g. photogrammetry, VR, etc.) and embodied cognition. After studying philosophy at the undergraduate and graduate level (at the Universities of Florida and Oklahoma, respectively), I began working full time in libraries and developing new tools and systems to augment research and instruction across disciplines.
As a researcher, I also study the state and trajectory of digital scholarship more generally, as well as what it takes to manage exploratory teams in libraries and the impact of new knowledge services related to physical fabrication and mindfulness. If you are considering a digital scholarship component for your project, please reach out so we can discuss how myriad library resources and collections might be employed to support your research, your lab, and/or other aspects of your scholarship.
