Diane Jakacki and Tom Lolis (2nd year Britts) presented on Digital Pedagogy and Early Modern Studies at the Renaissance Society of America conference in Washington DC on March 23. Three sessions, sponsored by the Centre for Renaissance and Reformation Studies and organized by Jakacki, featured nine speakers and a roundtable discussion about bringing digital pedagogy methods and tools to bear in courses related to early modern studies. Jakacki reflected on “Teaching Early Modern Popular Culture with Digital Editions,” analyzing the final project on which her students collaborated in last fall’s ENGL1102 London City Comedy course. Lolis spoke on “Mapping the Shores of Bohemia: Shakespearean Geography in the Digital Classroom,” a paper focusing on student mapping assignments completed for the ENGL1102 #DigitalBard course that he and Jakacki are teaching this spring. Both of them participated in the lively roundtable discussion that completed the series of sessions.
