    Abstract:
    Community college humanists have been slow to join communities of practice in digital humanities (DH), in part due to intensive teaching/ service workloads in an open-access context which puts constraints on professional development. To address this lag, Lane's July 13-17, 2015 institute will teach faculty DH theory and methods, build DH tools and projects, and scaffold these for their students' unique learning needs, with the result of expanding the definition of digital humanities practice to include the work of community college teachers, scholars and students. 25 participants will create a portfolio of project prototypes in data visualization, geospatial mapping, crowdsourcing, and digital storytelling, et al, emerging with a firm grounding in the complexity of DH and its applicability to their courses. A public keynote address will welcome the community into the conversation and participants’ work will be shared in an online commons that will serve as a hub for a community of practice.
    Notes:
    A 5-day institute for 25 community college faculty members, to be hosted by Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon, on new digital methods, tools and practices for humanities teaching and scholarship.
