Ryan Cordell, English and NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks, Northeastern University

Beginning from his 2016 essay, “How Not to Teach Digital Humanities,” Cordell will lead a wide-ranging conversation about effective methods for integrating computational methods into humanities courses. Since writing that essay, Cordell has continued developing a range of DH-infused courses at Northeastern University, including a first-year seminar, undergraduate classes in American literature and book history, as well as graduate courses in digital humanities and text analysis. Cordell will draw on his experiences in these classes to illustrate, reflect on, and refine the recommendations he made in “How Not to Teach.” In particular, Cordell will discuss aligning DH instruction with distinct learning outcomes, scaffolding DH skill development, and fostering critical engagement with computational tools. Participants are encouraged to bring specific case studies and questions from their own classes for discussion.
