Recap of the Digital Liberal Arts & Sciences Discussion

This month we kicked off our Digital Liberal Arts series with a town hall and design sprint about the impact of technological change on the ideas of disciplinarity, the liberal arts ethos, and pedagogy across disciplines. As the month comes to a close, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on that conversation.

Redesigning your Discipline for the Digital

Through guided brainstorming and problem solving at this session, we will collectively break down the opportunities and challenges of the digital liberal arts and sciences further to discover what similarities and differences we encounter with the digital across disciplines.
