We've all heard that digital tools can help enhance our research, teaching, and dissemination -- that said, it's not always clear how to get started. On May 27 and 28 the DHSI@Congress will return to Congress for its fourth year. The series features eight 2.5-hour introductory workshops covering everything from augmented reality and 3D printing to DH pedagogy and DH theory and a plenary by Ryerson's Centre for Digital Humanities director, Lorraine Janzen Kooistra.
The DHSI@Congress is built on the community model of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, now celebrating its 16th anniversary. The DHSI@Congress sessions, facilitated by established scholars and emerging leaders in the field, introduce a wide range of Digital Humanities methods and methodologies. As Ray Siemens, the director of the DHSI has put it, when we gather "we come together as a community dedicated to teaching and learning from one another — together shaping the experiences, knowledge and skills that define us and our community of practice." Come join the community to find out what DH can do for you!
