The Lewis and Ruth Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship has launched its 2023-2024 workshops, with over 40 sessions on subjects ranging from 3D printing and website design to digital map-making and data sharing.
The free workshops are open to McMaster faculty, students, staff, as well as anyone interested beyond of the university. All workshops are virtual unless otherwise noted. All are scheduled in the EST time zone.
Workshops are grouped by topic, including Do More with Digital Scholarship (DMDS), Research Data Management (RDM), and the Data Analysis Support Hub (DASH).
This fall also marks the return of the Sherman Centre’s certificate program, where a certificate of attendance is offered to individuals who attend seven or more sessions. Attendance is cumulative across years, allowing faculty, staff and students to work towards a certificate at their own pace.
Another exciting feature lies in the continued streams program. Participants can earn certificates in areas honed by each workshop series: Data Analysis & Visualization, Digital Scholarship, and Research Data Management. Participants must attend at least four workshops within a particular series to earn this specialization.
The Sherman Centre, based within Mills Library (1st floor), provides digital scholarship services for research and teaching that respond to the needs of faculty and students. To learn more, visit their website, which includes a searchable catalogue of 90+ learning modules, webinars, and e-guides.
