Humanities Going Digital
Teaching, training & research experiences


Following the contemporary advancement of digital technologies and the transformation of requirements for knowledge and skills of university graduates for the future, the education system is in the process of accommodating change towards the online environment.

The Humanities Going Digital project (Erasmus+), a cooperation between the universities of Palacký (Check Republic), NOVA Lisbon (Portugal) and Pečs (Hungary), focuses on the development of teaching methodologies, curricula and materials aiming at contributing to new ways of teaching (off and online) and new educational methods. This encompasses the inclusion of individual research activities of teachers and students in the field of Digital Humanities, while fostering the dialogue between the students in a professional and academic environment and promoting the direct reflection of the results of their work in the courses. In this context, and building upon three major axes,
– ICT – new technologies – digital competencies,
– New innovative curricula/educational methods/development of training courses,
– Open and distance learning,

this conference aims at presenting and discussing training, teaching and research experiences contributing to Digital Humanities, i.e., the field at the intersection of computational and digital technologies and all the disciplines of the Humanities, developed within the scope of the project and in other activities and institutions.
