    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Students in the Designing a Field House Museum class curate collections of images covering a range of topics in American cultural history, from race, gender, and education to popular literature and sports. They grapple with the complexities of finding and interpreting primary-source materials, the challenges of how to structure multimedia, and learning to write for a general audience. The shift from writing for a teacher to writing for a broader audience requires students to change their rhetorical strategies. Requiring a multimodal presentation further amplifies the need for students to consider how to effectively use the medium of the Web to present both materials and a thesis about those materials. As more primary-source materials are on the open Web, these sorts of assignments become easier to execute, since the work becomes more of discovery and curation, and less of scanning.
