How Do I Find ~ Digital Fluency Resources

Hamilton College Strategic Plan 2018

We believe it is important pedagogically and strategically to teach digital fluency across disciplines, so we will:

  • Develop a digital learning hub and research incubator to foster digital innovations and support faculty and student efforts to create, share, and explore digital learning and research
  • Hire four faculty content experts, one in each of the College’s academic divisions, to teach courses, help establish the hub and incubator, and assist in the development of digital initiatives
  • Provide the support necessary for faculty to create digitally focused courses throughout the curriculum and to develop pedagogical strategies to support this focus
  • Consider designating approved courses as “digital intensive,” similar to the “speaking intensive” designation applied to courses that emphasize oral communication and the “writing intensive” designation to courses that emphasize written expression
  • Explore the possibility of adding a digital-intensive requirement akin to the requirements that currently exist for writing and quantitative and symbolic reasoning
  • Link, as appropriate, digitally focused courses with new experiential learning opportunities
