Accelerating DH Education (Speakers: Elly Bleeker, Johanna de Groot, Aodhán Kelly, Martine Schophuizen, Sally Wyatt)

This workshop, during one of the biggest conferences on digital humanities (DH) globally, offers a platform for communication between DH practitioners, specialists in educational sciences and digital innovation strategists. The organisers are connected to several Dutch universities and research institutions alongside nationwide initiatives SURF (the collaborative ICT organisation for Dutch education and research), the Netherlands Association of Universities of Applied Sciences (VH) and the the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) that together in 2018 initiated the national plan “Acceleration plan educational innovation with ICT”. This combination of DH experts and educational specialists presents a unique opportunity to consider a shared strategic agenda for innovation in DH education. The workshop is organised primarily around two strands of discussion: 1) Open Education and 2) Shared educational agendas and initiatives.
