Digital Humanities Club: Preparation weeks
On August 30, we held our first official preparation meeting of the East St. Louis Digital Humanities Club concentrating on preparation. Our four undergraduates and graduate student session facilitators (also known as team leaders) discussed the overall parameters of project.
On September 6, we held our second preparation meeting. We discussed the schedule of activities for our first session. The team leaders made suggestions about what activities to keep in and what to remove.
The challenge was figuring out how to include enough materials to keep the students engaged, but not too much given our time constraints. The challenge was also an opportunity. We got a chance to think about about what we really wanted to prioritize during the time we would have with the high school students.
