    1. a majority believe they understand technology better than their teachers.

      I could imagine that our technology is effective for teachers now a days because it makes it a lot more convenient for students to turn in their work (ex: via canvas).

    2. educational careers sleepwalking through ed tech nightmares

      So relatable! I recently had a discussion with one of my classmates about our technology and digital world being a blessing but also a curse at the same time! There are so many benefits that come with our digital world evolving, however, there are a lot of disadvantages to the lack of in person conversations and interaction and also with a lack of privacy. Now a days, everyone always knows everything about one another due to social media and just our generation in generation. Will these social interactions ever change? If so, will they change for the good or the bad?

    3. DH is collaborative rather than solitary

      "DH is collaborative"... I would have to agree. When I think of digital humanities, I think of communicating and interacting with others across a variety of digital platforms. For example, in the digital humanities course that I took this term, we interacted on a digital platform through blogs with our peers and classmates. It was a really interesting and engaging way to interact with one another because it allowed everyone to speak up and have a voice of their own which is super unique for a college course.


    4. What is digital humanities?” “What is DH?”

      dig-it-al hu-man-i-ties... "an academic field concerned with the application of computational tools and methods to the traditional humanities disciplines such as literature, history and philosophy."

    5. graduate students

      Would digital humanities course be more successful if they were offered to undergraduate or graduate students?

    6. learning from students who have taken each version of the course

      I think feedback from students who have actually taken the course is most important. This would be the most accurate feedback in my opinion because they are the ones who have lived it.

    7. There is a concern about the course having sufficient enrollment.

      I disagree with this. Just like for any new curriculum that a school or university implements into their education, it may take a little bit for it to get recognition. But that is normal. You got to start somewhere. I think a digital humanities course would be highly beneficial for many. Regardless if someone chooses to take just a class or pursue it at their focus of study, I think there is a lot of benefit that comes from a digital humanities class. Speaking from experience, I am in a digital humanities course right now at my university and I feel like I have learned a lot about the digital world while studying different mediums such as - graphic novels, a memoir, short stories, among other texts. These readings have helped me think through concepts of home and homelessness, which has been our topic/ focus throughout the course.

    8. digital humanities in the curriculum

      This makes me so excited to see this! Especially since at my university, the University of Oregon, we just got the news that we are going to have a Digital Humanities (DH) major and minor offered- which is so awesome!

    9. “digital humanities”—had just been declared “the first ‘next big thing’ in a long time”

      It's so interesting looking back and seeing that "digital humanities" was the next "big thing" back then... It makes me think what is going to be declared the next "big thing" for us in our generation? Especially with how much the social and digital scene has evolved so much just over the past 5 years, it's hard to thing that anything could go above and beyond what our technology is now... what is next?
