Levke Harders: Social Media, Public History, and Higher Education: An Instruction Manual for a #Twitterseminar #dhiha8

Lecture within the conferene Teaching History in the Digital Age – Internation Perspectives #dhiha8, June 17-18, 2019 at the German Historical Institute in Paris, co-organised with the C2DH.

During the last winter term, I taught a class on the 50th anniversary of Bielefeld University, celebrated in 2019. Given my interest in social media as well as in teaching, the seminar combined university history with practical training (archival research and writing) and with Digital Humanities. The class aimed at training students to communicate their own research findings via social media. The young researchers chose various topics to prepare a Twitter timeline that tells a different story of Bielefeld University’s early years (see https://twitter.com/@UniBielefeld50 as well as the blogpost by one of the students: https://50jahre.uni-bielefeld.de/2019/04/03/jubilaeumsprojekt-twittertimeline).

Caroline Muller: Introducing Undergraduate Students to Research in the Digital Age #dhiha8

Lecture within the conferene Teaching History in the Digital Age – Internation Perspectives #dhiha8, June 17-18, 2019 at the German Historical Institute in Paris, co-organised with the C2DH.

Teaching digital history to undergraduate students is a big challenge: you have to both teach general digital literacy basics and be sensitive to the effects on the scientific environment. In my course of „digital cultures for historians“, the starting point is the status of scientific information. It helps to think about the construction of the web, the reading and the production of knowledge in a digital world. When students reach a more advanced level, the course transforms itself into an initiation to research: which forms of scientific information are available? Which political issues (open access) does it raise? How to differentiate primary and secondary source? What new materials are available for building History?

Call to Join the Blog Parade: Teaching History in the Digital Age – Who, What, How? #dhiha8

June 17 and 18, 2019 will see the eighth colloquium in the “Digital Humanities at DHIP” series, organised by the German Historical Institute Paris in collaboration with the Luxembourg Center for Contemporary and Digital History: Teaching History in the Digital Age – International Perspectives #dhiha8.

In preparation for the symposium Teaching Digital History to Historians – International Perspectives, which will take place on 17 and 18 June 2019 at the German Historical Institute, in cooperation with the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History, we are organising a blog parade on „Digital History in Higher Education“. The texts can be published on the author’s blog, or on the German Historical Institute’s conference blog until 10 June 2019, in German, English or French. Their titles will contain the hashtag of the symposium, #dhiha8. The blog posts will be summarised and integrated into the afternoon workshop discussion. In particular, we would like to attract personal accounts of initiatives, examples from teaching practice or reflections on the following topics:

Digital History

In recent years, the Digital Humanities community has advocated innovative methods, including the development of many digital tools that are not adapted to the specific field of history. Rather, these approaches have developed in the much more general field of humanities and computer science. Since many applications of the Digital Humanities are not yet subject to any disciplinary canon or standard, familiarisation with these methods and tools requires an intensive interdisciplinary effort of understanding that must generally be carried out individually.

Im Vorfeld der Tagung “Digitale Geschichte in der universitären Lehre – internationale Perspektiven”, die am 17./18.

Wir freuen uns insbesondere über Erfahrungsberichte, Lehrbeispiele oder Gedanken zu den hier aufgeführten Themenbereichen

Geschichtswissenschaft digital

In den letzten Jahren ist mit den Digital Humanities eine Community entstanden, die innovative neue Methoden, vor allem aber eine Vielzahl von Tools und Werkzeugen bereitstellt, die nicht einem geschichtswissenschaftlichen Kontext entspringen. Vielmehr werden diese Ansätze in einem allgemein geisteswissenschaftlich-informatischen Umfeld entwickelt.

Is your Research Future Proof? Data Management Techniques & Tools for Digital Historians – Hands-on Workshop #dhiha8

When?: June 17, 2019, 14h00-17h45
Where? Institut historique allemand Paris
Registration and information: event@dhi-paris.fr
Conference: Teaching History in the Digital Age – international perspectives #dhiha8

Due to the digital transformation of research practices, for Historians, activities and issues around planning, organizing, storing, and sharing data and other research results and products (e.g. digitized source materials, analysis results, web applications) play an increasing role. During this workshop, the participants will acquire knowledge and skills that will enable them to draft their own executable research data management plan, using the tool RDMO – Research Data Management Organizer.

Knowledge and skills acquired in this workshop, will support the participants in the production of reusable, machine-readable data, a key prerequisite for conducting effective and sustainable projects adhering the FAIR (Findable, Reusable, Interoperable, and Reusable) principles as promoted by the European Commission and national funding agencies within the framework of Open Science/Open Scholarship.
