The Johnson Digital Literacy Assignment Grant is designed for faculty who wish to enhance a course to include a digital literacy assignment. The assignment should allow students to explore the digital presentation of information and the ways that digital tools can be an effective part of the research process or the presentation of research results. The assignment may be a new one or a reworking of an existing one. Its design and assessment must connect directly to a student learning outcome for the course that addresses the value of digital literacy.
The grant provides a $500 stipend for the recipient and consultation with librarians on Musselman Library’s Digital Scholarship Committee. In addition, the JCCTL will pay for up to 20 hours of support by a Digital Scholarship Fellow. Fellows are students trained in the use of digital tools available on the Gettysburg Sites online platform through the Library’s summer program.
This application can be saved as a Word document for editing. Type your answers under each heading. Applications from all disciplines are encouraged. Please submit this application to Paula Baer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for application is March 30, 2018.
Recipients of a JCCTL fellowship or grant must submit a written report at the conclusion of their project and be willing to make one or more presentations about their work in appropriate on-campus venues.
