Student Presentations:

"Assigning the Podcast Essay to Amplify Student Voice" by Emily R. Sabo (Linguistics)

This talk is about creating podcasts in the undergraduate classroom. It is especially relevant for teachers who want to either give their students a new way of thinking about writing or inspire them to take more ownership of their own ideas. Resources to be discussed include, ClipGrab software, Audacity, and sample podcasts databases.

"Integrating Student Podcasts with Other Forms of Digital Reflection" by Jana Wilbricht (Communication Studies)

For my Spring 2018 course Indigenous Media — Production, Regulation, and Social Activism, students will create an e-portfolio, reflecting creatively on their thoughts, questions, and learning processes through text, image, video, and sound. Given the focus on media production, students will also create a podcast based on their interviews with Indigenous media producers who will visit our course as guest speakers.

"Speaking with the Dead: Digital Oral History for the Premodern Classroom" by Paula R. Curtis (History)

This presentation will consider how premodern specialists can integrate skills in public scholarship and digital media pedagogies into their undergraduate classrooms by combining “traditional” primary source analyses with innovative content creation through digital publishing platforms such as Scalar.

"Student as Knowledge-Maker: Digital Pedagogy in the Early Modern Classroom" by Amrita Dhar (English)

This talk will explore the use of digital tools and methods towards students' connections with and ownership of challenging historical material. In particular, it will explore the role of transcriptions and digital corpus-creation in a course on early women's writing.

"Where are you from? Combining Maps, Text And Multimedia Content To Make Afro Presence Visible in Argentina" by Marisol Fila (Spanish)

This talk is about integrating maps with narrative text, images and multimedia content in the context of an undergraduate course. I will discuss the use of the platform Story Maps to create a digital project that will serve as the final assignment for a Spanish course about the Afro presence in Argentina.
