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This series of workshops helps scholars avoid outdated projects, unpreserved knowledge, uncredited labor, and privacy or consent issues by emphasizing process in the project life cycle.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.

Intended audience: This workshop was developed for humanities graduate students and faculty members who are new to digital scholarship, but is open to everyone to attend.

Digital Scholarship 101: Planning your project
Are you planning a digital project but don’t know where to start? In this workshop, participants will learn the steps needed to plan a project for success. From identifying the team members and support you will need to formalize relationships and credit labor in ethical and fair ways. Instructors will lead participants through the process of writing a flexible project charter including documenting decisions and choices from team member responsibilities to technical needs such as platform choices, project phasing and versioning. Practical and critical considerations will be discussed and covered when writing a project charter, and how a project plan can ease the creation of documentation as well as the grant application process. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a project template and a better understanding of the requirements needed for digital scholarship.
