Digital Pedagogy Fellowships
- innovate with technology-enabled pedagogies
- infuse digital competencies into new and existing courses or
- explore the impact of technology through classroom instruction, assignments, and co-curricular experiences.
Faculty fellows work with LITS colleagues to develop or refine specific course assignment(s) that include digital learning approaches. The structure of the funded projects and related activities can take many forms, but bold initiatives and collaboration are especially valued. The fellowships are sponsored jointly by the Dean of Faculty and Library and Information Technology Services.

Celeste Day Moore
Professor Moore’s project will explore the use of data visualizations to help her students interrogate the critical role of cities in shaping African American life. Assignments for her Black Metropolis course will introduce students to the pioneering sociological work of scholar W.E.B. Du Bois, whose visual representations of Black life created for display at the 1900 Paris Exposition remain original and fascinating glimpses into the experiences of African Americans in a period of heightened political and social violence. First by analyzing his portraits and then by developing their own visualizations using census data, students will be better equipped to understand and critique the role of data in both historical and contemporary narratives of urbanity and race.
Professor Stember’s project will reconceptualize students’ final projects in an upper-level Women’s and Gender Studies seminar. Students will create interactive, engaging websites that highlight their knowledge of feminist theory. Stember and her students will work together to create professional websites that include interactive images, photo and image galleries, data displays, and infographics or videos. The project will inspire students to think creatively and bridge the divide between theory and praxis by generating a publicly accessible website that displays their analysis and understanding of feminist theory.
