Digital Humanities for Lifelong Learners

A workshop and research study to investigate how best to use WGBH’s archive of humanities programming to create a robust library of cross-disciplinary humanities modules for lifelong learners, emphasizing an audience over the age of 65.

Digital Humanities for Lifelong Learners is a research project that will convene leading thinkers in the fields of lifelong learning, humanities education, public media and humanities archives, and multi-platform interactive technology in a series of in-person and virtual meetings and other activities, including online surveys. The key purpose is to research how best to create a significant library of high quality, digital humanities modules, drawn from WGBH's vast archive and other public media sources, for lifelong learners, especially those aged 65+. An initial day-long meeting, held at WGBH and including all project participants, will set the agenda for this six-month research initiative, resulting in a detailed white paper that addresses audience research findings, humanities content, rights, and distribution issues, and technical and design approaches, and charts next steps for this project, including future funding possibilities.
