    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Open writing (contributing to Wikipedia, contributing to open history projects) is but one of many options for challenging students to produce public scholarship. In this example, first-year seminar students at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, produced short documentary videos in the form of digital stories shared via the Web. The Much in Common first-year seminar class explored common themes in both adolescence and aging, stages in life that can transform a person’s sense of identity. In intergenerational teams, undergraduate students explore changes in their identities by producing video stories together that focus on common threads, shared insights, and lessons about growth. Contributing to an open publication with an audience well beyond the professor and creating video resources that in turn can be useful for subsequent scholars forces students to consider a host of complex but important issues that the dominant mode of the closed classroom avoids.
