Following on our day-long Mapping Sense, Space, & Time workshop on Thursday 28 April, we will have a more focussed Q&A session on the morning of Friday 29 April on how best to integrate digital projects into university course pedagogy and curriculum. 


Creating Wired@Duke: A Teaching and Research Model for Digital Humanities -- Caroline Bruzelius, Duke University

Digital training needs of scholars and students in the humanities -- Greg Wilson, Software Carpentry

Neatline: Time, Space, and Digital Archives -- Alexandra Bolintineanu, Centre for Medieval Studies and Jackman Humanities Institute

Caroline Bruzelius will set out some ideas and answer questions based on her use of the Visualizing Venice project in her courses at Duke University. Alexandra Bolintineanu will provide a workshop on using Neatline, a plug-in for Omeka. Greg Wilson will discuss Software Carpentry
Software Carpentry's mission is to help researchers get more done in less time, and with less pain, by teaching them basic computing skills. Founded in 1998, it has grown into a world-wide volunteer organization with over 500 certified instructors who ran almost 300 two-day workshops in 2015 alone for over 11,000 people.  While it originally focused on physical and life sciences, over the last two years it has started working with librarians, digital humanists, and social scientists as well.  For more information, see http://software-carpentry.org or http://f1000research.com/articles/3-62/v2.
