In this course, you will learn how to do history using a wide variety of digital tools. This course — which fulfills the university’s Core IT requirement — will teach you the fundamentals of information technology through creative and critical engagement with historical methods and sources. You will engage with legal, ethical, and methodological questions about practicing history in the digital age. Oral history (as a practice and genre) has been particularly impacted by and transformed through digital technologies, and the specific focus of this course will be on using digital tools to analyze, prepare, present and preserve oral history online. Through learning by doing, you will gain and apply analytical and technical skills that will be useful for your university education and professional career.
The course will be taught virtually and asynchronously, meaning that we will follow a weekly schedule, and you may complete the coursework throughout the week at your own pace and time.
