    Hi all,

    With apologies for cross-posting, just wanted to make sure you know about an event on Monday (i.e. tomorrow/today depending on when you get this) that you may be interested in: Katherine D. Harris (San Jose State University; a CUNY alum) on “Risking Failure by Playing Around with Digital Pedagogy,” 6:30-8:30pm at the Grad Center, Rm 6417.

    Kathy says: “Something happens when we start incorporating Digital Humanities (DH) and digital pedagogy into the undergraduate classroom, something that’s not embraced in academia: failure. DH scholarship requires collaboration and playfulness – both risky endeavors in any Humanities classroom because of the need for assessment, structure, rules, and bounded learning. What happens when we modify some of the institutional structures and student learning outcomes to accommodate these two methods for learning and add into the curriculum a requirement for building something, anything, within the undergraduate classroom? The students collaborate, play around, and build materials for public scholarship, but we all risk failure – and then learn from it.”

    More info is on the CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative blog: http://cunydhi.commons.gc.cuny.edu/

    Hope some of you can make it, it would be great to see you there, and do pass the info on to your colleagues.

    Best,
    Charlie
