Creating space for all students to participate for more equity

August 11, 2017 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

This article about timekeeping as a feminist practice is perhaps one of the most influential pieces that I’ve read about pedagogy this year. Prior to reading this piece I hadn’t considered how I could user a timer to ensure that all students in my class have space for contribution. Although I have used a timer

That time I failed and why I shared that story with my students

April 28, 2017 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

Yesterday I was talking about final grades with my students.  It’s that time in the semester that I tend to lose the interest of my seniors and others who are feeling more enthusiastic about their summer plans than about finishing out their coursework, so I was giving them some advice about seeing it through to

Working with Wikipedia teaching with "the sum of all human knowledge"

April 21, 2017 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

As instructors, we know that our students consult Wikipedia when they want to learn the basics of a topic.  And while this practice can sometimes be concerning, especially if the students solely rely on Wikipedia rather than using it as a springboard for deeper learning, there are many ways to engage the students with Wikipedia

Building a Better Blog Rubric for faculty assigning student blogposts

April 7, 2017 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

One of the greatest challenges of giving online writing assignments to students is insuring that it’s clear how they will be evaluated for these types of assignments.  My colleague Mark Marino from USC recently shared his blog assignment rubric and I am going to use this as a springboard for my own blog assignments in

March 31, 2017 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

In today’s installment about Digital Scholarship, I feature a 2013 EDUCAUSE article written by Ed Ayers, “Does Digital Scholarship Have a Future?”  In this piece Ayers, President of the University of Richmond and National Humanities Medalist, explores concerns about how the primary activities of

What is Digital Scholarship? explaining my role on our campus

March 24, 2017 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

When I travel to conferences I often get questions about my title (Associate Director of Digital Scholarship) and what I do at Chapman, but I also get questions about what I do from within the university. So I thought I would explain a bit more about that in my blogpost today… First, let’s start with

New Tools for Blackboard with how-to links

March 2, 2017 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

This Spring we’ve added many new tools to Blackboard, to increase the ease of use of the software, and to streamline integrations with other cloud-based platforms.  Below are links to the instructions for how to use these new tools.  If you would like, you can also schedule a personal training session with our Blackboard Support

Into the Archive the impact of primary sources on the classroom experience

September 25, 2016 by | Higher Ed and Technology: Academics at Chapman

Each time I teach the Introduction to Digital Humanities (ENG 484/584) course the students tell me that their favorite experience is the day we spend in the Center for American War Letters Archive, transcribing primary source documents.  The power of holding tangible historical objects overpowers any abstract discussion we have about scholarly practices or any
