Fundamentals of Digital Scholarship is 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 faculty, students, 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.

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 organize those datasets
  • Prepare the data for analysis
  • Use beginner-friendly visualization techniques to explore datasets, and
  • Present the results in various formats on multiple platforms.
