What is the HASTAC Scholars Program?

The HASTAC Scholars program is an innovative student community. The program is comprised of graduate & undergraduate students who come from dozens of disciplines at 75+ universities. The Scholars are all working at the intersection of technology and the humanities, arts and sciences. As HASTAC Scholars, we blog, host online forums, develop new projects and organize events. Broadly speaking, Scholars are interested in the intersection of technology and learning, but this is applied and interpreted in incredibly varied ways. Some of our work here centers around rethinking pedagogy, learning, research & academia for the digital age. We are building a community of the next generation of scholars, makers, thinkers and teachers.

We welcome a new cohort into the program each year. As HASTAC Scholars, we write about our own work and research questions, discuss pedagogy, report on the work happening on our campuses and in our own regions, host local workshops, and build digital resources for others.

The Scholars are especially renowned… (cont. at HASTAC Scholars Nominations now open! | HASTAC)
