Digital Pedagogy

Digital Pedagogy is precisely not about using digital technologies for teaching and, rather, about approaching those tools from a critical pedagogical perspective. So, it is as much about using digital tools thoughtfully as it is about deciding when not to use digital tools, and about paying attention to the impact of digital tools on learning.

- From Hybrid Pedagogy, an open access journal about learning, teaching, and technology

Using digital tools and technologies in the classroom can make aspects of the learning process that are traditionally hidden more visible throughout the course of a semester as well as encourage students to make sense of course material in different contexts (such as outside of the classroom) and using different modalities.


If you're interested in exploring digital pedagogy, reach out to the Digital Initiatives Librarian.
