The Impact of Mobile Technology on Two Study Away Summer Programs 
Neal Baker, José-Ignacio Pareja, Earlham College

This presentation shares lessons learned and student outcomes for place-based, digital assignments on Earlham College study away programs in Italy and northern England/Scotland during May 2019. The Italy program was comprised of first-year, first-generation students while the UK program included first-year to senior students from different majors. Digital assignments involved e.g. audio podcasting, video documentary, and frequent photo/short essay multimodal writing prompts to foster group discussion in addition to personal reflection. Both programs asked students to reflect on how they thought technology affected their experience. Low-cost, mobile infrastructure involved e.g. DSLR cameras, a GoPro camera, smartphones, microphones, WeVideo, Google Sites, WhatsApp, and Facebook.

The Digital Archiving Lab: Encouraging Creativity, Collaboration, and Confidence Through Digitization
Angie Kemp, University of Mary Washington

The Digital Archiving Lab at the University of Mary Washington is a place for the digitization of rare and unique materials in the library's collections, and it is also a place where students, staff, faculty, and community members collaborate to create complex digital collections, preserve community history, learn marketable skills, and build confidence with digital tools. This talk will discuss how a digitization lab can grow into a space for creativity and collaboration, as well as some of the fantastic projects that have been developed as a result.
