Support for digital scholarship in the classroom

This is a guest post by Digital Scholarship Librarian Kayla Abner.

Rethinking assignments for the fall? With increased emphasis on virtual instruction, digital scholarship projects, like data visualizations, digital exhibits, or websites, may be more useful than ever. For example, maybe you usually have students write a paper on a topic — what if they created an infographic that included data analysis or visualization? Or, instead of a history exam, students worked to create a digital timeline detailing how the events unfolded?
