As a member of the professional staff of Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship (DP&S) at Bucknell, the fellow leads the department’s efforts in developing and implementing an internal and external communications plan that highlights and shares the work being done across campus in digital scholarship. At Bucknell “digital scholarship” is defined as any scholarly activity that makes extensive use of one or more of the new possibilities for teaching, learning and research opened up by the unique affordances of digital media. These include, but are not limited to, new forms of collaboration, new forms of publication, and new methods for visualizing and analyzing data.
The fellow’s responsibilities include:
- Conducting an ethnographic study of current digital scholarship practices on campus in order to produce a white paper that outlines where Bucknell has been effective supporting campus constituents and what needs faculty have moving forward
- Curating and showcasing digital pedagogy and scholarship artifacts, such as syllabi, course projects, articles, conference presentations, etc. in an open and online platform
- Participating in programming for Library & IT’s Digital Scholarship Center by leading workshops or identifying speakers of interest from within or outside the campus community
- Collaborating with the Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship team to support faculty in course design and summer research projects
