HIST395: Topics in Digital History (American Explorers) is an experimental course in which we’ll be investigating exploring expeditions by Americans and presenting our findings through a digital medium: podcasting.
Our objectives are these:
- To understand the wide range of motives and methods for exploration;
- To evaluate the effect of exploration on both the United States and the explored areas;
- To create a compelling historical story about exploration using audio;
- To develop skills in collaboration and project creation.
