Session Abstract

The aim of this proposed workshop at DHN 2020 is to bring together scholars, educators and others interested in different aspects of Digital Humanities and Social Sciences education to explore the current potential and challenges and opportunities related to the teaching and learning in these fields. The workshop will provide an opportunity to share experiences, discuss existing programs, modules and courses, research, training and development activities, evaluation approaches, lessons learned, and findings. A further objective is to systematically engage in discussions in common areas of interest with selected related communities and to investigate potential co-operation and concrete collaborative activities. 
The workshop will allow major established programs and initiatives to report results, newcomers to interact with established people in the field in order to allow the entire community to critically discuss topical issues. The DHN venue encourages participation by teachers, researchers and developers from different perspectives (reflecting the different conference threads). As the fourth workshop on education at DHN, it is envisioned as part of a workshop series taking place at annual DHN conferences in order to establish and provide a regular forum for discussions on education in Digital Humanities and Social Sciences in Nordic countries and beyond.
