This week, Brandeis LTS kicks off our Teachnologies series!
Our first seminar this academic year is with Jentery Sayers, Assistant Professor of English and Director of the Maker Lab in the Humanities at the University of Victoria. Teachnologies is a series that offers two compelling examples from Humanists who frame how they use technology in teaching to support students’ analytic thinking, and strengthen critical research skills and digital literacies.

Thursday, October 15th 12-1:00pm
Brandeis Rapaporte Treasure Hall, Goldfarb Library
Makerspaces are known for a bias toward tinkering and experimentation which can be difficult to translate into educational expectations and curricular outcomes. With an emphasis on the relationship between college classrooms and maker labs, Jentery Sayers visits Brandeis to share examples from the Maker Lab in the Humanities at the University of Victoria as well as several English and Digital Humanities courses, to explore their assumptions, motivations, and approaches to teaching and learning.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
