Digital Learning Community

The Digital Learning Community consists of faculty and administrators who are interested in integrating digital tools into their courses. They have agreed to attend workshops and semi-regular meetings to learn about digital tools, develop class assignments, and provide feedback on the process. The current faculty involved include:

Tech Fellows / DBAs

Technology Fellows are students selected based on their technical expertise, problem solving abilities, and communication skills. Their mission is to assist faculty and students with the software and digital analyses used in projects, including navigating Alice. We had two fellows in the 2017-18 academic year and have two additional fellows in the 2018-19 academic year.

The Grant

Davis Foundation, November 2016

In November 2016, The Davis Foundation awarded Endicott College a $106,043 grant to extend critical thinking across the liberal arts curriculum by systematically integrating digital literacy into the undergraduate classroom over two years. To achieve the goals laid out in the grant, we have created a Digital Learning Community consisting of faculty from across the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Communications to integrate projects into their courses that use digital tools to process, analyze, and visualize data.

The grant work is being organized internally by Drs. Laura Rossi-Le, Samuel Alexander, and Henry Feild, with substantial help from Dr. Mark LeBlanc of Wheaton College.

Digital Tools

There are many digital tools and analysis that fit well with the digital humanities. To make the first year of the grant as effective as possible, we are focusing on specific kinds of analyses and corresponding software:

To help track these tools, as well as datasets and class projects, we developed an online database, Alice. See a listing of our custom scripts here. Source code for customizations can be found on the endicott-tech-fellows GitHub page.
