    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: While this resource may seem like a surprising choice for this list, it provides a summary of outcomes from the first round of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants, including a survey of project directors and a summary of end-of-grant “white papers,” which distill lessons learned from the projects. Among other things, respondents reflected on the importance of goal setting, teamwork, and contingency planning, all foundations of good project management. Anyone planning their first digital project and applying for funding would find this report an interesting read. This report and associated white papers would make a good classroom exercise wherein students highlight the types of challenges that one might encounter with digital projects and then plan a project wherein they minimize the potential negative impact of these. Students may also use this artifact to guide their reflection on projects that they have undertaken and focus on lessons learned.
