Agenda for the EVIA Digital Archive workshop. The EVIA Digital Archive is a Andrew W. Mellon-Funded initiative at Indiana University to create a permanent location for the scholarly peer-review and curation of ethnographic field video, including video in anthropology, ethnomusicology, and other disciplines. It is also a rich resource for the sharing and secondary analysis of ethnographic field data in class discussion or research. This workshop, taught by Dr. Richard Freeman (UF Anthropology Librarian and visual ethnographer), will cover an introduction to the EVIA Digital Archive and a hands-on workshop for learning the basics for using the archive in teaching and research.

Mon day, 8 April 2013 12 1 :30 pm Pugh Hall 210 Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG) Discussion: Digital Pedagogy Discussion and Recommendations from the DHWG DHWG Conveners Laurie Taylor, Digital Humanities Librarian, UF Libraries, Sophia K. Acord, Associate Director, Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere, Discussion: Digital Pedagogy Discussion and Recommendations from the DHWG In reflecting upon a series of UF wide events examining education in the digital age (including the 2013 Grimes Conference in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences on April 1, 3, and 4th and the April 11th Morrill Act Anniversary Symposium), faculty member and graduate students are invited to join us for a d iscussion of blended and online education from a humanities perspective. What are the challenges to becoming a digital pedagogue in an assessment driven, academic culture with decreasing budgets? What are the digital literacy expectations for teaching assi stants going on the job market, and how are graduate students using their own classrooms as ways to develop digital pedagogy skills and practices? And, how can UF better prepare digital pedagogues to teach in the 21st century? This discussion will be frame d and moderated by Laurie Gries and Terry Harpold, faculty members in the UF Department of English. The goal is to produce recommendations and topics for consideration by the university, as well as our own community of practice in the DHWG. Potential Additional Topics from the Grimes Series: Do we need a common technological platform at UF? Or common platforms, and what do w e need these to support for our teaching? Do we need instructional technology fellows to assist faculty and students? What kind of faculty development effort or rewards might be helpful? What concerns do we have for our own ability to assess digital pedago gy for our teaching goals (in addition to, along with, and aside from external assessment concerns)? How much do students need to come in with particular training for us to work with new pedagogical digital tools? (What would we like them to have learned before coming to our classes, to make it easier for us to use new technologies?) taught with librarians, instructional designers, and/or IT professionals) for teaching skills in context with disciplin ary research? If this approach seems productive, what concerns are there for this approach? Digital Humanities Working Group The UF Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG) is a group of academic and library faculty, staff, and graduate students who meet monthly to discuss current projects and topics at the intersection of digital technologies and core research needs and question s in the humanities disciplines. The Spring 2013 working groups will include workshops in the use and application of several different software programs for creating and using virtual archives. We will discuss curation as a scholarly activity, and how scho lars can collaborate with librarians and archivists to think critically and productively about making archival materials digitally usable by scholarly communities and wider publics.
