History Majors at the Bucknell Digital Scholarship Conference
Joe Aldridge and Isaac Ryss presenting at the Bucknell Digital Scholars Conference with Dennis Frank (pictured) and Phillip Payne.
The presentation, "We Built and App: Exploring New Assignments in a History Class," was about the student, archivist, and faculty perspective in introducing a new assignment building an app to host our digital map of the St. Bonaventure Cemetery. This is the sort of assignment that brought together the History Department, Friedsam Memorial Library, and the St. Bonaventure Android App Development club.
This being a digital scholarship conference, participants were active on Twitter so here are some Tweets about the presentation.
The conference had a lot of really cool examples of people working across disciplines and unites. We came back with a lot of ideas for new, fun, assignments.
