Subject: [APLA-LIST] THATCamp@X, 8 April 2019, Digital Pedagogy

Dear Colleagues,

Join us on April 8th, 2019 in Antigonish, Nova Scotia for THATCamp @ X!<>

The theme of our event will be Digital Pedagogies, with a focus on post-secondary instruction methods. We welcome students, teachers, librarians, and other professionals interested in this topic.

THATCamp stands for "The Humanities and Technology Camp." It is an unconference: an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.

Our keynote<>, which is free and open to the public, will be by  Professor Bonnie Stewart (University of Windsor): "Digital Pedagogy in an Age of Algorithms: What do we DO about Data?." 8 April, 3:45-5:00pm in the Desmond Hall (Coady West Building Rm 120, St Francis Xavier University).

THATCamp is:

  *   Collaborative: there are no spectators at a THATCamp. Everyone participates, including in the task of setting an agenda or program.
  *   Informal: there are no lengthy proposals, papers, presentations, or product demos. The emphasis is on productive, collegial work or free-form discussion.
  *   Spontaneous and timely, with the agenda / schedule / program being mostly or entirely created by all the participants during the first session of the first day, rather than weeks or months beforehand by a program committee.
  *   Productive: participants are encouraged to use session time to create, build, write, hack, and solve problems.
