Grinnell and The University of Iowa logos

During the next three years, the Center for Teaching, ITS Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology, will partner with UI and Grinnell College faculty members to develop humanities-centered collaborations that implement digital technologies. Through a $1.6 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the “Digital Bridges for Humanistic Inquiry” initiative will provide support for faculty members to enhance their digital skills.

The Center for Teaching staff, including Student Instructional Technology Assistants (SITA), will help develop multi-day faculty professional development institutes and provide pedagogy consultations for Iowa and Grinnell faculty members from an array of humanities disciplines. 

As part of the inter-institutional collaboration, the project will provide professional development opportunities for faculty members, including the Digital Bridges 2015 Summer Institute. For more information and to apply, click here.

The Director of the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies Teresa Mangum and Associate Professor of Library and Information Science James Elmborg will serve as the UI principle investigators for the project.
