In August 2012 Lewis and Clark College invited members of the NITLE network to experiment with digital field scholarship by playing in a digital field scholarship sandbox. These projects were selected and have been contributing to a collaborative website for digital field scholarship, https://sge.lclark.edu/dfs/. View each project’s individual page to find out more.
Davidson College, Math Maps
Directed by Tim Chartier, Associate Professor of Math
Students create geotagged math maps as a service-learning project in a course on Finite Math.
Muhlenberg College, Documentary Research Storymapping
Directed by Lora Taub-Pervizpour, Associate Professor and Chair, Media and Communication
Students in a Documentary Research Course create a collaborative storymap that aims to capture the human particularity of places in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Reed College, Carbon Field Studies
Directed by Kristen Bott, Instructional Technologist, with Julie Fry, Assistant Professor, Chemistry and Environmental Studies, and Chris Koski, AssistantProfessor, Political Science and Environmental Studies
Students use smart device geolocation and collaboration to place issues of carbon sources and sinks in a spatial context via the Digital Field Scholarship WordPress site.
NITLE congratulates all three projects, institutions, and all sandbox participants on being selected to participate in the 2012-2013 sandbox.
In addition to the above projects, students in a Digital Field Scholarship Seminar: https://sge.lclark.edu/dfs/project/digital-field-scholarship-seminar/, led by Dr. Jim Proctor (who also directs the sandbox) at Lewis and Clark College also are participating in the sandbox.
Sandbox participants will share their projects and insights in an upcoming Shared Academics seminar, Thursday, April 25, 2013, 3-4 pm EDT.
