Teaching and learning

TEACHING AND LEARNING Professional Practice


Professional PracticeEmploying digital technology can really benefit students and scholars, especially when they’re not getting too caught up with a particular gizmo as such, using it just to use it. Instead, it’s a question of how technology can both aid in traditional modes of scholarship/study and create new ways of approaching it.”  Dr. Trevor Hoag, Assistant Professor of English and a member of the CNU Digital Humanities Task Force

What is an archive? Professional Practice

‘the meaning of "archive“, its only meaning, comes to it from the Greek arkheion: initially a house, a domicile, an address, the residence of the superior magistrates, the archons, those who commanded ...’

Teaching a buried archive
Teaching a buried archive history

And while they’re provin’ that his end is sure

By strange ill omens—to assuage his smart

The minister comes in, wha’s to the poor,

Without a fee performs the doctor’s part:

An’ while wi’ hope he soothes the suff’rers heart,

An’ gies a cheap, safe recipe, they try

To quat braid Scotch, a task that foils their art;

For while they join his converse, vain though shy,

They monie a lang learn’d word misca’ an’ misapply.

(The Irish Cottier’s Death and Burial. James Orr)
