Inviting CUNY Students and Faculty of All Skill Levels and Disciplines
GC Digital Initiatives invites applicants for the inaugural Digital Research Bootcamp, an opportunity to develop digital research skills and connect with others in an interdisciplinary environment. The GC Digital Research Bootcamp is a four day workshop where you will learn how to use a range of digital tools and methods for doing research. There are multiple tracks targeted at different skillsets and disciplinary focuses.
Free of charge to participants, the GC Digital Research Bootcamp has been developed in partnership with Software Carpentry, the New York Public Library, Mozilla Science Lab, Humanities Intensive Learning and Teaching, and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute thanks to the sponsorship of GCDI, The Graduate Center, and The CUNY Strategic Investment Initiatives Program.
The GC Digital Research Bootcamp will take place over four days, January 19-22, 2016, from 9:30-6:00 daily. A preliminary list of workshop topics to expect can be found below.
