Centre for Digital Heritage Summer School

Thursday 10 July 2014, 9.00AM

The Centre for Digital Heritage will be hosting a training workshop at the University of York over two days on the 10th and 11th of July.

Digital technologies play an increasingly significant role in heritage research. However despite their prevalence and potential it can be difficult to know how to integrate digital methods successfully into your own work. The CDH summer school is designed to help newcomers from any discipline learn the essential skills needed to build and run a successful digital heritage project; from getting the funding to archiving your data. Both days will be made up of a combination of expert lectures, workshops and group work.

Day 1: Planning your Digital Research Project This day will focus on getting started. We will find out what makes a good digital heritage project and will go through the design process step by step. The day will feature guest lectures from the Archaeology Data Service as well as from researchers who have been awarded substantial grants for digital heritage research projects.

Day 2: Managing your Research Project Funding bodies today want more than a good research question. They need to know that you are able to manage your digital research project in a responsible, sustainable way. Day two will be dedicated to the effective management of your project and the delivery of results. The day will feature guest talks from Martin Donnelly of the Digital Curation Centre as well as advice from successful researchers. Attendance is free to all White Rose research students and staff and includes overnight accommodation if needed.
