Transforming Student Learning through Digital Pedagogy:
The “Our Odysseus Project”
By Prof. Marie Hulme, English Department, College of Arts and Sciences
The “Our Odysseus” project offered students opportunities to engage with a text while developing important 21st century fluencies in technology, collaboration, creativity, and multi-modal, multi-disciplinary approaches to learning.
“Our Odysseus” is an online site designed and developed by first-year Sacred Heart University honors students studying Homer’s The Odyssey in an English course during the spring ‘15 semester. The digital nature of the “Our Odysseus” project allowed students to share their work with the world beyond their classroom and that added impetus for a high level of excellence and professionalism.
