The second half of the workshop started with an impulse talk on DH Methods Training in an international context by Ray Siemens. After that, the participants explored challenges encountered, requirements that need to be addressed, and common denominators that can be identified in order to advance the development of a digital pedagogy for digital humanities.



At the end of the workshop, DARIAH-AT sponsored two awards for contributors to the workshop which were voted for by workshop participants:

  • Best Contribution Award: David Birnbaum
