ZSR Library’s Digital Initiatives & Scholarly Communication team invites Wake Forest faculty to join us for the 2022 DH@Wake Summer Institute: Digital Publishing. Our 3-day workshop will explore opportunities and resources for digital publishing in teaching and research activities. The Summer Institute will be held in-person (unless public health conditions require moving online) at ZSR Library beginning Wednesday, May 25 through Friday, May 27, 2022. Participants will receive a stipend of $750 at the completion of the workshop.

Digital publishing offers the possibility of reaching audiences beyond academia, empowering students to create valuable resources that live beyond the classroom, and allowing authors to incorporate multimedia into print-based publications. During this interactive and collaborative workshop, faculty will have the opportunity to think through such possibilities and how they can be applied in classroom and scholarly projects in partnership with the Library’s new digital publishing service, Yellow Leaf Publishing. Platform demos, hands-on sessions, discussion, and time for consultations will be included in the schedule. Workshop and discussion topics may include:

  • A range of digital publishing tools available for scholarly publications and class projects
  • Designing and scaffolding digital publication assignments
  • Copyright and privacy considerations in digital publishing
  • Teaching with open access digital editions
  • Creating open educational resources

Faculty from all ranks and career stages are invited to apply. Up to 15 faculty will be selected to participate. No prior experience with digital publishing or using digital tools is required. If you are interested in participating, please fill out this brief application form.

DEADLINE EXTENDED! Applications are due by Friday, April 29 and notifications will go out by May 3.

Questions may be directed to Carrie Johnston (johnstc@wfu.edu) or Molly Keener (keenerm@wfu.edu).
