Digital Fluency and Experiential Learning: Promoting Digital Humanities in Undergraduate Research

The development of an interdisciplinary digital humanities undergraduate research track whose courses would feature community-engaged experiential learning.

The project team for “Digital Fluency and Experiential Learning: Promoting Digital Humanities in Undergraduate Research” will create a Digital Humanities Undergraduate Research (DHUR) track for UNC Asheville’s Undergraduate Research Program. DHUR courses will engage students in digital humanities through experiential learning and undergraduate research activities. The grant will facilitate faculty development efforts in order to increase the number of courses that employ humanistic inquiry and digital tools and to adapt and pilot courses for the DHUR track. These courses will incorporate practices such as community engagement, archival research, story mapping, oral history collection, and other forms of experiential learning. Students in DHUR courses will contribute to the crafting and dissemination of an inclusive online museum housing archival materials and interactive projects that illuminate the experiences of historically excluded people in Asheville and its environs.
