Questions to consider for roundtable conversation

Hi everyone,

Thanks to those that provided a brief overview of their topics for Friday. Based on these, I’ve come up with a few questions to frame the roundtable conversation.

  1. In what ways does/could cartography help your students engage in the subjects you teach?
  2. How do digital tools help your students pursue research questions in the humanities? …. Or if you are working from within a design or STEM discipline, what philosophical, social, cultural, or humanistic issues arise in your technology-based classroom projects?
  3. What are the greatest difficulties you have faced when introducing social or humanistic topics into the digital classroom? What are some creative ways that you have overcome these challenges?

Here’s the outline and order of speakers:

2:15: I introduce panel theme and NEH grant concept. I will introduce speakers separately before each mini-presentation (name and department only).
2:20: Peter
2:25: Sean
2:30: Anne Leonard
2:35: Satyanand
2:40: Ting
2:45: Anne Leonhardt and Ashwin
2:55-3:15: Roundtable (open) conversation in response to above prompts. Questions from attendees, if there is time.

Please be respectful of your fellow members’ time and keep your presentations to 5 minutes or less. 

Finally, a reminder to register for the conference HERE. The conference program is also at that link.

If you have PPX slides to share, please send them to me some time before Friday morning.

I’m likely attending all day on Friday (our OpenLab colleagues are presenting with Matt Gold at 9:30am… two other City Tech groups are concurrent with our own). I won’t be at the conference on Thursday, although the Keynote on Thursday looks excellent.

Thanks! Looking forward to see you all at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, 524 West 59th Street at 2pm on Friday. Please write with any questions. I can also be reached at 917-549-4343 in cases of emergency.
