CUNY IT Conference abstract

hi everyone,

Looking forward to working with you all on this. Below is the abstract Chris submitted:

The topic of our roundtable discussion derives from a recent NEH grant proposal for technological innovation in humanities classrooms at NYCCT. At the IT Conference, co-investigators on that grant will discuss the ways in which their experiences using technology in the classroom informed the development of the grant. They will also outline the intended deliverable–to create geospatial mapping tools for research on, and instruction in, Brooklyn’s social history, culture, and urban development. Co-investigators will confront a central challenge in using technology in undergraduate education: developing digital tools that are at once approachable and compelling to liberal arts students, while providing sophisticated computer-based applications that have the capacity to provide new insights into topics from the humanities.

  1. Thank you, Anne. Also, FYI, here’s the version of above that will be in the conference program. It needed to be edited down to observe the word limit:

    Participants from a range of disciplines will discuss their experiences using geospatial mapping tools for research on, and instruction in, Brooklyn’s social history and urban development. We will confront a central challenge in using technology in undergraduate education: developing digital tools that are at once approachable and compelling, while providing sophisticated computer-based applications that have the capacity to yield new insights into topics from the humanities.
