Handouts for Teachers – Research-based learning # Preparation / general conditions and goals - What subject-specific content is to be taught? → Berry, Fagerjord 2017 – Digital humanities

- What are the didactic (competence) goals? → Competence goals

- Which focal points make it easier for the students to achieve these goals? → Awakening Wonder

Digital Humanities Basics

Problem statement:

- ProblemMuster / Problem patterns, Problemmuster

- Model used in the design process. See Learning Rather Than Schooling

Week 1 – Introduction

# Cover (all) the bases

On average, eight minutes currently elapse between the preparation of a digital conference and its launch – that's seven minutes too many. -- page

The first session will be about organizing the beginning together. We establish a common ground and clarify how we can adapt the form lecture (Vorlesung) to the current situation. See Flipped Classroom.

The German word *Vorlesung* is a compound of *vor-* and *lesung*/lesen. This lecturer (Vortragende) does not intend to speak in a monologue, but will prepare the material step by step, starting with a small perception and ending with a collection of answers to the initial research question: For which problem is digitalization a solution?

> The participants perceive that they themselves are perceived. – Interaction (Interaktion)

SP – Answer for yourself the question, what exactly do we want to learn in our course?

SP/PT – Find a form to be able to answer the research question.

- Alone (with the problem)

- slow / fast Interaction (Interaktion) > […] the number of possible communications makes a selection necessary [→Complexity].

- Group size: 5–15 (see Dunbar and Wiki, Heinz von Foerster, Bibliothekare und Technik: eine Mesalliance? "Technology- What Will it Mean to Librarians?", Illinois Libraries vol. 53(9), 1971, 785-803.)

Code practice and mentorship (Exercism)

Week 4

(see Sowa 2000; Schreibman et al. 2004: xxv). […] 'requires humanists to make explicit what they know about their material and to understand the ways in which that material exceeds or escapes representation'
