Tips: Digital Scholarship Skills Training at UVic, SFU, & UBC

April 25, 2016

Tip: fill out this quick survey if you are interested in taking digital skills training workshops and/or leading a workshop (the survey asks for your email address if you want to be contacted about future opportunities)

Digital Scholarship Skills Training

A thorough grounding in foundational technical skills is necessary for the success of digital humanities projects and research. Last year, the ETCL and UVic Libraries coordinated "DHSI During-the-Year: DH Skills Training @ UVic" to respond to a desire for ongoing digital humanities skills training. The inaugural offering drew a strong cohort of students, librarians, staff, and faculty members. Of note, this course was also available for transfer credit for those enrolled in the DH Graduate Certificate offered through UVic.

Building on the success of this offering, we're exploring possibilities for some inter-institutional collaboration on skills training curriculum between UVic, SFU, and UBC. 

By completing the short survey at the following link: http://bit.ly/skills-training-survey, the SFU Library will be able to get a sense of which specific skills and areas are of especial interest to the digital scholarship-curious on the west coast. Responses to the survey will be evaluated on Saturday April 30th.

Thank you in advance for your help! Please contact Rebecca Dowson at rebecca_dowson@sfu.ca if you have any questions, concerns, or further comments.
