Concentration in the Humanities

A pilot project to identify and consider methods, including the modification of test software, to minimize student distraction by digital environments. The project would be conducted in conjunction with an interdisciplinary humanities course on concentration.

Concentration in the Humanities is a three-part project that helps Humanities students deal with digital distractions. The Concentration in the Humanities Project will serve as a pilot. Weber State's Composition Program (which one of the grant participants directs) will integrate the pilot's best practices into its curriculum. Concentration in the Humanities will also catalyze campus conversations about the problem of distraction in the digital age and the importance of learning how to focus when attempting to read or write.
