Works in Progress: Digital Humanities and Digital Literacy at Drew

Drew University was recently awarded a Mellon Foundation planning grant for Digital Humanities (DH). The funds are being used to apply for a major grant to  found a DH program to augment teaching and learning across disciplines.  To prepare our students, Drew will institute a “Creating Digital Leaders at Drew” program. Work with a platform called “Domain of One’s Own” will build the digital literacy foundation for our students. Drew’s program will focus its efforts on building digital literacy for students in order to prepare them for intensive faculty-student research using DH as well as for their post-Drew futures.
