Shared Course Planning: Updates and Questions

Results of our Course-Planning Call 11/1/13
A warm thank you to those of you who were able to join us on our conference call  to discuss the possibility of offering shared, for-credit DH courses. Notes on our conversation and next steps.
In summary, we decided to move forward with a two-part plan: a) to explore a multi-institution agreement that would allow cross-registration in existing DH courses as soon as next academic year; b) to develop a concentration of advanced, for-credit, online, graduate-level DH courses, to begin Fall 2015.
Questions for everyone:
As part of our planning, we would like to get a sense of who among us is already teaching or planning to teach DH courses next academic year, and we would like to collect ideas for the topics of possible advanced courses. To that end, please take a few minutes to send your answers to the questions below to David Wedaman (
  1. Are you (or do you know of someone at your institution who is) planning to teach a DH course in Fall 2014 or Spring 2015?  Please share what details you have.
  2. If you could develop a new, online, graduate course as part of an advanced concentration in digital humanities, what would its topic be?
