Just as scientists prefer to publish positive results, discussions of digital humanities pedagogy tend to focus on success stories — great projects, student engagement, polished websites. But just as negative results are important to science, so that scientists don’t keep repeating the same fruitless experiments, negative pedagogical experiences are important for teaching. This session will encourage participants to share their digital pedagogy fail stories, with an emphasis on what went wrong, why, and how we all might avoid similar problems in the future. Stories involving any aspect of the teaching process — assignment development, syllabi, student engagement, specific tools, etc. — are welcome. Ideally, we will be able to identify some common pitfalls and come up with some shared strategies to avoid them.
