PhD Student Residency Programs
Focusing on the process of translating research to practice, students are given guidance on how to create meaningful learning experiences for any level audience in sessions led by prominent scholars, master educators, and technology experts. Most importantly, the design of the residency requires direct and collegial work among students from different universities and disciplines, creating a much richer network of humanities professionals.
Previous programs have focused on geospatial and mapping technologies, podcasting and storytelling, open educational resources, object-based learning, and project-based learning methodologies.
