teaching

Course websites and OA teaching materials.

I teach both graduate and undergraduate courses in the School of Information Sciences and Department of English at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My courses tend to blend methods from digital humanities, critical bibliography, book history, and data science. I outline the ideals I strive to meet in my classrooms in my statement of my teaching philosophy. I also discuss ideas about digital humanities pedagogy in the article “How Not to Teach Digital Humanities,” published in Debates in the Digital Humanities 2016.
