My research project was a part of the summer internship at the University of Victoria. The internship included three different sub-projects:

1. Developing an annotated bibliography on digital humanities pedagogy, public humanities and engagement, and open resources;

2. Holding discussions with DHSI (Digital Humanities Summer Institute Instructors) on digital humanities pedagogy, public humanities and engagement, and open resources, and developing a final report;

3. Assisting with and participating in the DHSI.

The primary goal of this project was to develop a better understanding of the humanities community in action, in order to provide more opportunities for public-facing engagement and pedagogical methods. To achieve the main objectives of my research I used such tools and programs like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Dropbox, Google Sheets, Google Forms, Basecamp, Skype, etc. The most significant part of the project for me was the experience in the DHSI. I had an opportunity to ask the experts in this field the questions related to my research. I believe that the research on Digital Humanities Pedagogy can lead to the enrichment of teachers’ strategies and the expansion of the research area. It gives us an understanding how we can make the educational process easier and more effective, which methods and tools teachers and students can use, how to get new outcomes in such a traditional field like humanities with the help of new technologies.
