The presenters share how they have used computational methods and digital media to pursue their teaching methods and research in the humanities. Dr. Jaxon gives two examples of learning pedagogies that use digital methods – middle school students sharing blogs with CSU, Chico teaching credential students and using principles of gaming with CSU, Chico freshmen required to complete English remediation. Dr. Newell explores the conjunctions of scholarly communications, digital humanities, and academic libraries. Dr. Sparks uses digital methods in his study of medieval prisons. Dr. Veidlinger describes the time-saving computer programs that quickly compare historical texts that appear in many different versions.
