New ways of accessing and analysing data are making their mark in the arts and humanities. Digitised material can be studied differently, born digital data provides new challenges, and in some disciplines data is being collected with new instruments. This also begs the question of which methods and tools BA students should be introduced to? What ought they learn? How can this be integrated in teaching? And could it provide competencies that would be valuable in the long run? Not least in relations to secondary school teaching where digital methodology is a part of every subject.

The seminar is about answering these questions and is divided into two parts. The morning is primarily devoted to case presentations from four fields on how they have developed a digital curriculum. In the afternoon, we will work in groups on creating a draft digital curriculum for your field.
