ISFM 600: Information Environments

Instructor: Dr. Andrea Wiggins

University: University of Maryland – College Park

Description: INFM 600 Information Environments will explore various models and methodologies used to capture and deploy internal and external information and knowledge in a number of settings. Students will analyze organizations in terms of information creation, flow, sharing, conservation, and application to problem solving. The course will take into account both internal and external influences on the management of information and knowledge. We will also examine how information flows and is managed in a variety of settings, and examine a number of examples of successful and unsuccessful online information management.

Syllabus: Fall 2014 | Spring 2015

Assignment: See pages 11-12 of the provided syllabi.

HUM 380: Research Methods in Digital Humanities

Instructor: Dr. Libby Hemphill

University: Illinois Tech

Description: This course is designed for Digital Humanities majors, Technology and Humanities graduate students, and other students interested in DH research. This course will prepare you for the research and writing required in your advanced HUM classes and graduate research projects and will help you master tools (both theoretical and technical) for engaging and understanding the world around you. You can find the schedule for the semester on Google Drive — watch for updates throughout the term. You will design and build an artifact of digital scholarship (e.g., a website, a movie, an interactive infographic), write blog posts to reflect on the readings and activities, and collaborate as a class to produce digital guides about data sets and publications in digital humanities research. Most of our readings will be related to developing technical skills for doing digital humanities research (e.g., learning a scripting language, understanding data structures) or publications about digital humanities research (i.e., articles from academic journals).
