More Hack Guide

We, the #feralcats of THATCampLAC 2012, want to support the motto of more hack, less yack at THATCamps. To help THATCamp participants hack, we’ve compiled this More Hack Guide both as a handbook for hacking but also as an example of what four focused people can produce in 40 minutes after going rogue at a THATCamp.

Minus sermonis, operis plus! (Less yack, more hack!)

We created these guidelines in just 40 minutes.  Think what you could do in 75.

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.
