How has the digital environment changed the way English is taught at the high school and college level? What kinds of possibilities have been generated and new challenges presented? In this podcast,​ ​Nancy Gardner, with the Center for Teaching Quality, and​ ​Patricia Matthew,​ ​associate professor of English at Montclair State University, discuss​ ​the advantages and anxieties that accompany the use of digital technologies to support the study of literature and instruction in writing.
Gardner and Matthew are participants in a new educational initiative from the National Humanities Center, Humanities in Class: A Guide to Thinking and Learning in the Humanities, which seeks to highlight the processes of discovery, analysis, and teaching specific to different humanities disciplines.
