DH@CC Summer Institute Meeting February 9, 2015

DH@CC Summer Institute Meeting 2-9-15


  • This meeting is called to refine the information we’ve been developing in past Summer Institute meetings. We will first address the structure of the seminar. We     will also discuss DH@CC resources and how those resources will be provided to participating faculty. We also want to establish what information the seminar will provide, what questions it will answer. We will provide hands-on demos in the institute, so we need to establish what those look like and which tools are focused on. There will also be a best practices session with the library.


  • The Summer Institute is a week long event where faculty who plan to apply for Digital Course Development grants can learn more about DH, explore possibilities, and build skills for using DH tools. Snacks and coffee will be provided, but participants will provide their own lunches.


  • 10 faculty members will participate in the Summer Institute. Preference will be given to faculty who are new to DH. Applications for the Summer Institute, which were already designed and implemented in our last meeting, are due on March 6th. They will be reviewed by this committee on March 9th, and we will notify faculty of our decisions     on Friday, March 13th.


  • Once our 10 participants are chosen, we will send them a survey to establish which break-out sessions will take place in the afternoon. They will choose 4 from a list of 11, which we developed in our last meeting.


  • Faculty are encouraged to come to     the Summer Institute with a project they would like to investigate. This could be the Digital Course they want to develop.


  • The Summer Institute will work like a clinic, or hands-on seminar.


  • The mornings of the Summer Institute will be lectures.


  • The afternoons will consist of hands-on tool and skill learning. Four experienced individuals will be paid 400 dollars to give these sessions. They will be optional     for faculty, as they may choose to do one-on-one mentoring instead.


  • A best practices lecture will take place after lunch. This part of the day addresses meta data, copyright, data management, privacy, and so on.


  • Following the day’s event, there will be a reception where faculty and facilitators can decompress and discuss the day’s findings.
