As colleges and universities commit more resources and staff in support of digital scholarship, they also face the challenge of creating sustainable programs. Despite the increase in faculty and staff hires, the growing demand for a range of technical expertise means that many institutions are continually working at or over capacity. Further, as faculty become more engaged in using digital methods and tools in their research, they look for ways to incorporate digital approaches in the classroom. Introducing students to digital scholarship is one way to increase capacity for this type of work on campus while simultaneously providing students with skills that will serve them as they move forward in their careers. The pre-conference workshop brought together a range of digital scholarship practitioners engaged in the question of how we create innovative and meaningful opportunities for students to learn digital methods and tools in order to facilitate learning, collaborate with faculty, and expand their own research interests.

The pre-conference attendees met on Friday, October 6, to discuss various approaches to student engagement in digital scholarship. The outcome is a public website that presents best practices, case studies, and other resources.

  • Lee Skallerup Bessette, University of Mary Washington
