Educators are constantly looking for new and better ways to create a more effective learning experience for students.  At the University of Arizona, Dr. Carter has been doing this in the area of Humanities.  His research centers on how using traditional and advanced interactive and immersive technologies change the dynamic within the learning space.

He’ll introduce his audience to the idea of Digital Humanities and how the College of Humanities (COH) has implemented it through the Center for Digital Humanities.  There will be an introduction to the Center, an overview the Center’s mission, and highlights of a few of their projects.

Most recently, Dr. Carter was the Keynote Speaker at the International Conference on Language, Linguistics and Literature (L3) in Singapore and has been invited again as a Visiting Professor at the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne.  “Recognizing that the Digital Humanities are of ever-increasing importance in the development of any culture, the question now becomes, how to nurture, develop and encourage COH faculty to naturally incorporate Digital Humanities into nearly all that we do as Humanists. Through this Center, we will explore the most effective ways to accomplish this task.”

He has published numerous articles on his doctoral project, Virtual Harlem, and has presented it at locations around the world. His research focuses on advanced visualization and how sustained and varied digital communication affects student retention and engagement in literature courses taught both online and face-to-face.
