    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: In her hybrid University of Southern California Annenberg course, Kathi Inman Berens works with students face-to-face and also uses synchronous video platforms. The course focuses on how we engage one another through digital media, and the students work in teams on projects for real-world clients. As Berens explains in this syllabus: “I expect you to be on your laptops and smartphones during class. . . . Connectivity is essential to our work.” She asks students to keep a “Distraction Log” to make observations “about their own media consumption habits.” The course spans media, geography, and traditional/nontraditional learning environments. Helping students understand how to move within and between these spaces is a key literacy for working in digital space. She writes of her teaching philosophy, “It doesn’t matter to me if my classroom is a little rectangle in a building or a little rectangle above my keyboard. Doors are rectangles; rectangles are portals. We walk through” (“New”).
