Associate Professor: Sample (Director)

Digital Studies gives students an opportunity to pursue coursework and research related to the digital tools, cultures, and practices that permeate everyday life. Digital Studies courses range across three broad areas: digital creativity, which includes digital art and digital storytelling; digital culture, which focuses on the communities, activities, and expressive works that digital technology has given rise to; and digital methodology, in which digital tools are used to quantitatively or qualitatively analyze, map, and share text or data. Combining theory and practice, DIG courses foster learning goals essential for the 21st century: procedural literacy, data awareness, network sensibility, entrepreneurial thinking, iterative design, digital citizenship, information preservation and sustainability, and the ethical use of technology.
