Janet Simons, associate director of instructional technology, and co-director of the Digital Humanities Initiative, was part of a panel on Collaboration in Digital Humanities at the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) Symposium, April 16-17, in Arlington, Va.
In the panel Granting Collaboration, What’s Next?, NITLE member colleges and universities who have received grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the purpose of enhancing support for teaching and learning, updated NITLE members on their work. A discussion followed on how liberal arts colleges can collectively set and execute a research and demonstration agenda for digital scholarship.
According to its website, “(NITLE) helps liberal arts colleges and universities integrate inquiry, pedagogy, and technology. With our NITLE Network members, we work to enrich undergraduate education and strengthen the liberal arts tradition. Established in 2001, NITLE is the key organization for liberal arts colleges and universities seeking to engage students in the unique learning experience that liberal education provides and to use technology strategically to advance the liberal arts mission.”
