Dear colleagues,

We would like to share with you our Call for Proposals for the DARIAH-EU
VCC2 workshop:

“Innovative Teaching Methods and Practices in Digital Humanities”

to be held on July 7 at the Digital Humanities Conference 2014 in Lausanne.

You will find the full text of the CfP at:

With this workshop, we would like to encourage the participants - and,
consequently, the DH community at large - to share their thoughts and ideas
on how the development of a digital pedagogy for digital humanities should

We are looking for proposals from both long-time practitioners of DH and
recent adopters with innovative ideas, methods and interest in digital
humanities pedagogy. We are looking for thoughtful and creative
contributions that will be surprising, enlightening and inspirational. We
are interested not only in what works but also what doesn't — and what we
can learn from failed experiments.

This full-day workshop will be divided into two sessions:

Showcasing best practices for teaching and learning DH

In the morning session, participants will have the opportunity to present
their ideas and/or actual teaching methods and materials.

Challenges in DH pedagogy

The afternoon session will provide a forum for the participants to discuss
the most prominent challenges and issues in teaching DH as well as the
necessary next steps in promoting DH through digital pedagogy.

Proposals should consist of an abstract of up to 500 words and a short bio
which should be submitted by e-mail to:
zim at uni-graz.at(mailto:zim at uni-graz.at)

The submission deadline is April 13.

The proposals will be evaluated and selected by a program committee of
international experts. The length allocated to each contribution (10-15
minutes) will be decided by the program committee, depending on the number
of contributions and the strength of the proposals.

Notifications regarding the acceptance of proposals will be sent out by May

Feel free to share this with colleagues, blogs and mailing lists that you
find appropriate!

We are looking forward to your contributions!

All best,

Claire Clivaz, Walter Scholger and Toma Tasovac
