Fundamentals of Digital Scholarship is a two-day seminar designed to introduce participants to the core stages of digital scholarship’s research workflow: the acquisition, manipulation, analysis, and presentation of data.

This seminar is intended to serve as a springboard for students, faculty, and staff who wish to explore the potential of digital scholarship. It will provide a solid foundation from which participants can continue to develop these skills whether on their own or through a series of advanced, subject-specific follow-up seminars currently in development.

The seminar is structured as a series of hands-on sessions that provide participants with the opportunity to work with real-world datasets that relate to the humanities and social sciences. These sessions will teach participants how to:

  • create digital datasets by mining online resources or digitizing paper materials,
  • effectively store and organise those datasets
  • prepare the data for analysis
  • use beginner-friendly visualisation techniques to explore datasets, and
  • present the results in various formats on multiple platforms.

Participants are expected to attend both days of the seminar, as the sessions build upon one another. Registration is capped at 30, and in the event of over-registration, preference will be given to participants who are able to attend all sessions.
