Humanities in Class: Webinar Series

Humanities in Class Digital Library: Using OER to Collect, Publish, Remix Curriculum

Lead Scholar: Andy Mink (Vice President for Education Programs, National Humanities Center)

September 2, 2020

How do you access the readings, PowerPoint, and recording from the NHC webinar titled “The Historical Context of Black Lives Matter?” How can you modify and remix “The Columbian Exchange” lesson from the America in Class series? How can you connect and collaborate with scholars and educators committed to promoting civic education and the importance of voting? Launched in June, the Humanities in Class Digital Library (HICDL) is an Open Education Resource (OER) platform that serves as the primary makerspace for all NHC instructional resources and provides support to develop activities and curriculum for your classroom. This webinar will provide a guided tour of the HICDL and sample resources as well as a tutorial on how to create instructional resources for your classroom. Amplified by resources from over thirty partner organizations across humanities disciplines, the HICDL is one of the most trusted resources for humanities education available.
