With another semester well on its way, the grad fellows here at DiSC have put together a great set of workshops and DiSCussions for the spring.
Starting in just a few days--Monday, Feb 6, to be exact--grad fellow Moya Bailey will teach "Remote Collaboration," a workshop about best practices for collaborating with colleagues across the country and world. The following week post-doc and digital scholarship extraordinaire Brian Croxall will give some basic approaches to "Creating An Online Presence." And the last week of February, I'll be sharing the quick and dirty about Photoshop -- ever want to switch heads with someone in a photo? I can hook you up.
This is just what we have going on in February. Check out the rest of the workshops on DiSC's site where we have a great lineup that includes an intro to Prezi (with post-doc, Roger Whitson) and Basic Mapping (with grad fellow, Frankie Abbott). Both are sure to be great sessions for grasping the basics of these digital tools.
We grad fellows are also revamping our DiSCussions with two dedicated events, the first will be a panel of former (and graduated!) PhDs who ended up not teaching in the humanities field from which they were trained. That will be on Tuesday, Feb 21. Ever wonder how your humanities PhD can get you a job outside of the classroom? Come find out how these 5 scholars made it happen.
Following in the same vein, we are happy to welcome Georgia Tech scholar, Lauren Klein, who will share her digital scholarship and her journey as a young professor thru an academy that is at times slowly coming around to digital concerns.
We think its a great semester of events, and we hope you'll join us.
As always, feel free to come hangout in the Research Commons. If you're lucky, we'll have a bowl of Nerds waiting on you.
