Hestia Digital Pedagogy conference, 6 June 2014


There are still places available for the Hestia2 conference Digital Pedagogy: Transforming the interface between research and learning?, which will take place on Friday 6 June  from 10am to 4pm in Room 246, Senate House, London.

Funded by the AHRC, Hestia2 has been exploring some of the consequences of applying digital technologies to humanities text-based research, including investigating the use of network theory (Southampton), complex data visualisations (Stanford), and Literary GIS (Birmingham). In this final seminar, we consider the extent to which digital technologies are transforming knowledge of research beyond academia, what the particular challenges and opportunities are for digital-based teaching, and what consequences there may be for research practice.

The seminar is FREE to all, lunch and refreshments will be provided, but places are limited. If you would like to participate, please sign up here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/digital-pedagogy-transforming-the-interface-between-research-and-learning-tickets-11758940307
