Notre Dame in 1968: Today’s Students Look Back–Creating a Timeline Exhibit as a Case Study in Digital Pedagogy and Collaborative Teaching

Angela Fritz, Rachel Bohlmann, Julie Vecchio, University of Notre Dame

This panel will explore the pedagogical successes and challenges of using a digital platform, TimelineJS, to support undergraduate research and collaborative teaching. We will showcase a digital exhibit, “Notre Dame in 1968: Today’s Students Look Back,” created as part of an upper-level undergraduate course in the Film, Television, and Theater (FTT) Department at the University of Notre Dame. The panel will discuss the rewards and unique challenges of bringing digital humanities projects into a classroom. Topics include project planning and scoping, metadata creation, implementation (including organizing a display to a scholarly audience), rights management (e.g. FERPA and copyright review), and digital preservation.
