Description

Static web technologies offer an exciting opportunity for Digital Humanities instructors to incorporate transferable digital literacy skills into the classroom, while producing low-cost, low-maintenance web projects that are sustainable even for institutions with limited resources. These tools spur students to learn transferable data management and digital literacy skills, and their open nature strengthens instructors' control over classroom web projects. This presentation will introduce the NEH-funded Learn-STATIC initiative, which aims to make static web technologies more accessible for students and instructors alike through open-source learning sequences that contain reusable code stored in GitHub repositories, example lesson plans, and documentation.

Learning Outcomes

  • Attendees can expect a general introduction to static web technology

  • Attendees will gain an overview of how librarians and faculty at the University of Idaho and University of Oregon utilize static web technologies for creating sustainable Digital Humanities projects that also teach students transferable technical skills

  • Attendees will learn about where to find templates, documentation, and community support for static web Digital Humanities projects

Learn-STATIC: Innovative Digital Humanities Pedagogy With Static Web Technologies
