HIST3814o|DIGH3814a Carleton U, Summer 2022 with Prof. Shawn Graham.
Methods & Theory
This is a methods course exploring how we work with digitized historical information, different ways of analyzing it, and different ways of telling the story. We’ll do everything from text analysis to webmapping to immersive storytelling.
Do I Need To Be Techy?
As long as you like making things, experimenting, and are willing to discuss what hasn’t worked - and why! - you’ve got what it takes.
Choose Your Own Adventure
Everyone has a different comfort level with tech. I will provide you with different paths to follow appropriate to different comfort levels. You can change tracks to suit your interests or developing skills.
Keeping a log and reflecting on your progress will show me how you meet the learning objectives. But you can also craft a final Exit Ticket to reflect on what your overall grade should be, taking into account your own circumstances if you wish.
