Shawn Hill, "DH Evangelizing in the Academy"
Attending professional conferences like CTDH 2020 is often a heady rush of new perspectives, projects, tools, colleagues, and research. While immersing oneself in gatherings of fellow-travelers is undoubtedly rewarding and enriching, returning to our home institutions often compels us to ask ourselves how we can encourage our non-DH colleagues to consider or (hopefully) incorporate digital humanities approaches in their own research/scholarship and pedagogy.

As an Instructional Technologist nested in an IT department, one of my ongoing challenges has been to constantly refine my Why-not-try-new-digital-technology-in-your-classroom? pitch to faculty. I look forward to sharing conversations and approaches that have worked, and some that have failed to encourage faculty (who don't self identify as DH practitioners) to consider venturing out of their comfort zones and trying something new in the classroom.

Kate Boylan, Mark LeBlanc, and Thomas San Filippo, "
Archiving & Broadcasting Born-Digital Content"
We present an interdepartmental collaboration to build and deploy a workflow of effective practices for faculty and students as they create, catalog, manage, curate, and disseminate the growing collection of their digital works. The need for systematic workflows stem from a flurry of entrepreneurial work on our residential campus and has sparked our institution to action toward continual improvement and production of digitized collections. We report on a workflow with four faculty from multiple disciplines where pieces of digital scholarship are initially stored, managed, and shared on an individual's personal digital space, and curated pieces become a new type of collection elevated to and stored for wider dissemination and use as the foundation of new and future scholarship.
