Christiane Sibille: Teaching Digital History. A Three-Step Approach #dhiha8
Lecture within the conferene Teaching History in the Digital Age – Internation Perspectives #dhiha8, June 17-18, 2019 at the German Historical Institute in Paris, co-organised with the C2DH.
In my contribution, I will talk about a three-part course model that I taught at the University of Basel. The courses are intended to impart knowledge and skills about methods and practices of Digital History and to encourage students to apply this knowledge in other areas of their studies and possibly also in their future careers.
The presentation outlines the basic structure of the courses, describes the experiences after two cycles and discusses the challenges of teaching digital skills in the curriculum.
Dr Christiane Sibille is scientific collaborator and head “Digital Innovation” at the research centre Diplomatic Documents of Switzerland (Dodis). She has held teaching positions on “Digital History” at the Department of History at the University of Basel since 2015 and is president of the Swiss association “History and Computing”.
