Wake Forest faculty are invited to apply for the 2023 DH@Wake Summer Institute: Digital Projects in the Open. Our 3-day workshop will explore opportunities and resources for publishing digital projects in teaching and research activities. Hosted by ZSR Library’s Digital Initiatives & Scholarly Communication team, the Summer Institute will be held in-person at ZSR Library beginning Tuesday, August 8 through Thursday, August 10. 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 openly engage in the digital commons. 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 digital publishing service, Yellow Leaf Publishing. A project showcase, tool explorations, hands-on sessions, and discussions will be included in the schedule. Questions to be explored may include:

  • I have an idea…what’s possible?
  • That’s a cool project, can I do that too?
  • I have these materials, what can I do with them?
  • How do I scaffold the project?
  • Can students be involved in the creation process, and how does this align with learning goals?

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

Applications are due by May 18 and notifications will go out by May 31.

Questions may be directed to Molly Keener (keenerm@wfu.edu).
