        Subject: Re: DH skills for syllabus?

In response to Norman Rusin's query about teaching DH skills in a cultural
history course, you might take a look at the *Digital Pedagogy in the
Humanities* keyword, History, by Shawn Graham for help on this one:

The keyword consists of a definition of "history" in terms of Digital
Pedagogy and then is accompanied by 10 pedagogical artifacts (syllabi,
assignments, etc.) to help anyone get started in that particular area.

Currently in GitHub, the collection is moving to a newly-built digital
platform where users will be able to amass their own collections of both
keywords and artifacts through favoriting. With 59 keywords and 600
artifacts that have been tagged, the collection is for beginning,
intermediate, and advanced digital pedagogy and Digital Humanities
