DHAs

If you are assigned a multimedia/new media project for your class or are interested in learning digital tools and methods for your own personal use, schedule a consultation with a Digital Humanities Associate (DHA). 

DHAs are Berea College students who primarily engage in peer-to-peer instruction by supporting digital humanities projects throughout the academic year. They offer hands-on guidance and assistance for digital class projects through one-on-one consultations* and holding evening walk-in hours. Behind the scenes, DHAs also plan and design resource handouts, tutorials, and workshops.

*DHAs will be available for one-on-one consultations starting in the Spring 2020 semester.
