Why Go Digital in the Humanities?
Monday, February 19, 3:30-5:30pm, OC 203

Technology transforms our classrooms, libraries, workspaces, and archives. Join Shelley Rose, convener of the DigitalCSU working group at Cleveland State University, for a workshop on using technology in your teaching and research. Rose will give an overview of how humanities scholars utilize digital tools, ranging from research aids like Tropy and Zotero, to websites like WordPress or Google Sites. She will also provide examples of best practices for starting larger projects that embrace content-management platforms such as Omeka and tools like GIS mapping and Text Encoding (TEI). A digital “playdate” will follow where participants can share project ideas with the group for feedback and guidance.

Participants should come prepared with the device of their choice (laptop, tablet, etc). All participants will have access beyond the workshop to resources and materials at https://sites.google.com/view/jcudh/home.
