Tweed-jacketed, book-loving humanities professors seem as if we are at a disadvantage when faced with today’s Millennial students. New approaches to the digital humanities offer to engage students, academics, and public audiences in new ways–but those approaches often seem to require big grants and teams of programmers to implement. In “5 Course Hacks Any Humanist Can Try: Digital Humanities as a Teaching Playground,” Jason B. Jones, co-editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education’s ProfHacker blog, looks at practical strategies for engaging students with the humanities. No specialized technical knowledge or specific platform required!
