DSS partners with faculty on digital classroom projects and undergraduate research supervision.

We provide pedagogical consultation, workshops, and curriculum development services to incorporate digital humanities tools and methods in teaching. We work with instructors to scaffold digital project components in alignment with course learning objectives.  See the the DSS Blog for more, and see below for sample student-faculty collaborative research projects supported by DSS.
