Section Information for Fall 2020
This course, which satisfies the university’s IT requirement, prepares students to use and understand a wide variety of current and emerging digital technologies. The course teaches the fundamentals of information technology within the context of a history course rather than as a set of abstract principles or discrete skills tied to particular software packages. We will also spend time on academic and personal ethics in the digital world, and the challenges posed by the trade-offs between open source/open access in the humanities on the one hand and the need for data security on the other. Students will complete a digital project focused on area national parks and/or historic sites that will provide them with tangible evidence of their digital skills.
