Presentation

#dariahTeach is an open source, extensible, online multilingual, community-driven platform for high quality teaching and training materials for the digital  humanities specifically tailored for third-level education.

Digital humanities is a relatively new discipline at the intersections of computing, information studies, design, and the various disciplines of the arts or humanities. It is inherently collaborative, transdisciplinary, and computationally engaged.

#dariahTeach supports educational values such as creation, creativity, autonomy, and social networked learning. It also is experimental in understanding online curriculum development as design thinking.  The goal is to provide a flexible offering that can be integrated into diverse teaching and learning situations: both for teachers in the classroom, as well as for students who are not at institutions which offer digital humanities as a subject area.

Begun in January 2015,  and funded by an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership, #dariahTeach is a partnership of eight academic institutions across Europe. Maynooth University (NUIM) (Ireland) is coordinating the Partnership which  includes DIGHUMLAB Aarhus University (Denmark); Athena Research and Innovation Center in Information Communication & Knowledge Technologies (Greece);  Austrian Academy of Science (Austria); Belgrade Centre for Digital Humanities (Serbia); Erasmus University Rotterdam (The Netherlands); Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (Switzerland); University of Lausanne (Switzerland).
