As the DH@CC Mellon grant is focused largely on pedagogy, one of its major activities is Digital Course Development. The DH@CC initiative offers competitive Digital Course Development grants of $6,000 to 5C professors who will use the funds to develop or redesign courses that focus on or make use of digital tools. The grant cycles will take place over three years and result in a robust offering of up to 25 DH courses which will be taught at least twice during the life of the DH@CC Mellon grant.
Faculty who are awarded Digital Course Development grants may also apply for funds to hire undergraduate or graduate student assistants to collaborate with. With the help of the Honnold Library staff, students and faculty will together design and implement digital media projects that further enable their DH courses to succeed in the classroom.
Application is closed
The deadline to apply is Sunday, March 13, 2016.
Another major focus for the DH@CC Mellon grant is to build a vibrant DH community across disciplines, departments, and institutions. Not only do faculty involved in the DH@CC become familiar with each other and the Honnold Library staff, those who receive Digital Course Development grants are asked to present their DH courses and projects to the 5C community. Faculty may choose to either make a formal presentation at a DH@CC event, or develop an educational video with DH@CC media personnel.
Faculty with appointments in fields not traditionally understood as the Humanities are welcome to apply if they are engaging in Humanistic inquiry. Faculty can receive one grant for Digital Course Development, must teach the course they received funding for twice within the grant period, and give an informal presentation on their course as part of the grant’s community programming that will be recorded and posted in Scholarship@Claremont.
