This paper discusses the academic and societal implications of teaching computational methods to humanities students from the perspective of digital humanities. Pedagogical choices are backed up by both pedagogical theory and concrete examples from actual courses and course feedback. The aim of this paper is to introduce clear best-practice recommendations for developing digital humanities teaching with an emphasis on methods teaching in order to increase the number of students who understand such methods and can apply them to their own projects.
