The Digital Integration Teaching Initiative (DITI) is now accepting new faculty partnerships for the Spring and Summer 2023 semesters. Northeastern has committed to improving how we teach our undergraduates the digital tools, skills, and methods that will enable them to be successful in today’s world. The DITI was established to help CSSH faculty to meet this goal. We collaborate with faculty across CSSH disciplines to help integrate digital methods and skills in a wide range of classes.
We know that the fall is just getting started, but in order to successfully plan for partnerships in the spring term, we request that interested faculty partners:
- Fill out the DITI call for partnerships form by Tuesday, November 1: https://bit.ly/diti-CFP-SP23 (Please note: you do not need to know all the details of your course to fill out the partnership request form.)
- Meet with us for an initial consultation by Friday, December 16 to confirm basic information (course logistics, module objectives, and so on).
Once you fill out the intake form, we will contact you to schedule a consultation, where we will discuss the details of your course and develop a partnership plan. We will also send information on how you can reserve a day or days for the DITI team to visit your class(es). Weeks at the beginning and the middle of semester are historically more popular, and we allocate our visits on a first-come first-served basis. Therefore, if you are interested in those weeks, we recommend that you reserve the dates you are interested in as early as possible.
You can learn more about the program at our website: https://cssh.northeastern.edu/nulab/program/diti/, where you will find information on how the initiative has progressed, view sample student work, and read our faculty guidelines.
DITI partnerships may also involve collaborations with the Boston Area Research Initiative (BARI), and with the Library’s Digital Scholarship Group, Research Data Services, and Digital Media Commons.
If you have questions at all, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to hear from you!
