Course Overview This seminar is intended to prepare History students for future careers as academics and/or educators. Technology is a major part of our lives and even though students are well informed about the databases and other technological tools essential to their research, they are less familiar with the vast array of interactive tools and applications that allow them to share their research findings more effectively and efficiently in academic or educational settings.
Through this course, students will discover various scholarly uses of technology and further hone their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. They will experiment with a wide variety of online and offline tools to enhance their oral and written presentations and will explore strategies to increase audience participation. Moreover, students will learn how to tailor information to the distinct needs of different audiences and to deliver historical narratives in new and interesting ways.
Each student will work on a specific era within Japanese history throughout the course and will develop teaching and lecture modules, create digital timelines, develop interactive maps, etc.
