Digital projects have the potential to be valuable tools for research, outreach, and pedagogy. But it’s often hard to know where to start to create a project that’s scalable and sustainable for your situation. In this workshop, participants will team up to work on a model project that integrates historical contexts with data and information literacy principles, and that requires minimal technical know-how. We’ll brainstorm ideas for how this project can be adapted for pedagogy, training, and outreach in various contexts. The end result is a fun, collaborative project that can enrich outreach efforts for a variety of projects, and offers scholars and students a chance to explore hands-on digital scholarship.
Participants will learn:
- How to build an interactive timeline using Timeline JS
- Principles of minimal computing for digital projects
- Strategies for using interactive timelines for outreach and pedagogy
