Integrate Digital Humanities into Courses Easily
Scholarly research has evolved to fit today’s technology-driven interdisciplinary studies. Since academic institutions began to digitize primary source material, there has been a growing responsibility for college and university faculty to teach students how to access and analyze it. Teachers, librarians, and students alike know the maxim of the digital age: “If it’s not online, it doesn’t exist.”
The Gale Digital Scholar Lab was developed to make digital technology work for everyone. The Lab transforms the way researchers and students access and analyze Gale Primary Sources and provides a better understanding of research methods and the technology behind them. Our goal is to help faculty integrate digital humanities into their courses in a simple, intuitive way. The Lab grants college and university students easy access to the world of advanced research methodologies.
Gale Digital Scholar Lab was designed for students at every level. Advanced researchers can move beyond the boundaries of traditional humanities study, while novice researchers and undergraduate students can easily navigate the platform. The Lab provides an intuitive workflow, engaging content, and an extensive instructional scaffold. It’s an outstanding tool for students who are new to digital humanities.
To further support the teaching and study of humanities through digital technology, the Gale Digital Scholar Lab also includes a Learning Center with “Beyond the Lab” instructional materials to help professors develop coursework and apply digital tools in the classroom. Learning materials include course outline samples, end-to-end project outlines, sample assignments, and project templates.
