Back to the Future: Collaborative Digital Humanities Projects
One of the most compelling means of making history meaningful for undergraduates is having them make history themselves. At Concordia College - Moorhead, a historian, an archivist, and a librarian collaborate to provide hands-on primary research projects meant for a public audience. Students process and create artifacts for a digital archive, contextualize and interpret their contributions using secondary research, and communicate their findings via online exhibitions. A traditional research and writing-intensive assignment is transformed into an opportunity to make history for the future, using active-learning, a growing knowledge of information structures, and digital tools.
