ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Session 3.3 Juried Panel: Cultural Heritage Informatics at Simmons: Towards an Innovative Case-based Curriculum

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this interactive panel session we will discuss the challenges and opportunities we have encountered in building new programs in Cultural Heritage Informatics (CHI) at Simmons. We will describe our ongoing project to develop case studies and teaching scenarios for use in CHI courses, which we hope will contribute to the development of CHI as an interdisciplinary field of study, spanning the historic divisions among libraries, archives, and museums. The session also will be an opportunity for audience members to discuss ideas for new case studies and for using cases in CHI curricula.
