Digital Scholarship 101: Advocating For Your Digital Project

Wednesday, 3/8, 1:00 pm-2:30 pm

Please join us for the final workshop in the DS 101 series, which brings it all together. You’ve got a great plan for your research project. It’s conceptualized, and you know how you’ll manage the labor, materials, and information. How do you describe the value of your project in your CV or when you are up for review? And how will people know about it and find it once it exists? Building upon the themes in the DS 101 workshop series, this workshop will discuss how to communicate the successes and impact of your digital project to make it legible to fellow researchers and university administration. This session will provide guidance on how to best communicate and highlight to external and internal stakeholders the deliverables and anticipated outcomes of your project.

Note: This workshop will be held on Zoom. You will receive a reminder and a Zoom link one hour before the workshop.

About the Digital Scholarship 101 workshop series:

This series of workshops helps scholars avoid outdated projects, unpreserved knowledge, uncredited labor, and privacy or consent issues by emphasizing process in the project life cycle. Workshop participants learn how to conceptualize the life cycle of a project using human-centered design and backwards modelling when planning their projects to better understand how to version, archive, and preserve their research projects. Throughout the series, thematic questions around sustainability, preservation, accessibility, privacy, consent, grant requirements, and teaching with research will be examined. We encourage you to come with a project in mind and bring materials if available, but is not required to attend.
