Basics of Project Management for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences
So, you want to do a DH project? In this session, I will outline DH project management best practices and introduce resources for researchers wanting to get started. As Digital Humanities is a highly interdisciplinary field, projects almost always involved experts across many different fields, departments, campuses, and sometimes countries. Planning how all these people will work together throughout the life of the project is crucial to its success. This session will include introductions to the many invaluable resources out there for researchers
This DH@UBC series of talks will be in partnership with the Library Research Commons Digital Scholarship series, and will cover the basics of how to get started with Digital Humanities at UBC. The series is aimed at those who are new to the University and who want to explore what DH can do for their research.
