Crowdsourcing

Ben Brumfield led a great session on crowdsourcing at THATCamp Texas 2011.  I’d love to see that session again.  In addition to talking about it, we could try our hand at one of the many crowdsourced manuscript transcription projects.

About Rebecca Davis

I am the Program Officer for the Humanities at the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), which is headquartered at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX. In 2010 NITLE launched an initiative in digital humanities, focused on finding pockets of innovation in the liberal arts community and connecting these dots into a coherent, collaborative effort. Its goal is two-fold: to advance the development of digital humanities at liberal arts colleges and promote the valuable contributions these colleges make to and within the broader digital humanities movement. As part of that initiative, I have been researching how the digital humanities are integrated into small liberal arts colleges, especially the undergraduate curriculum. At NITLE I also research and consult on the effective use of technology for teaching and learning in a variety of disciplines, including the teaching of writing, languages, and Classical Studies.

  1. I’d be happy to join in, so long as it’s not in session slots 1-3, during which I unfortunately have conflicts.

  2. I’d like to try this out, too.

    I’d be interested in this, too!

  4. Dick Brown says:

    I’m quite interested in the crowdsourcing topic — in fact, I was planning to look into this in a collaboration with a Chinese historian. Hope there’s enough interest to make it a session topic!
