Digital technology workshops offered

By Leslie King | Emory Report | Sep. 27, 2013

Want to learn how to create a virtual tour on your smartphone? Or how to manage your digital identity, research and brand assets? Learn this and more in a series of workshops and training on digital technology offered by the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) this fall.  

Next up is "Digital Identity: Using WordPress to Establish your Online Presence" on Monday, Sept. 30, at noon in Room 217 of the library. This will be followed, later in the semester, by "Digital Identity: Managing Your Digital Assets." All are free and open to the public.  

Sessions continue throughout the year; with some workshops being offered multiple times. Topics include mapping tools such as GPS and GeoCoding; pedagogical approaches such as the flipped classroom; and approaches for managing your digital identity, including video streaming, online exhibitions and Emory's visual brand identity.  

View the complete schedule of trainings and workshops.  

The workshops in ECDS are led by the librarians, faculty and staff who had previously worked within the Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC), the Emory Center for Interactive Teaching (ECIT), the Electronic Data Center, and the Beck Center for Electronic Collections. ECDS was created in June 2013 following a merger of these four units.  

"The ECDS is very interested in partnering with other groups on campus," says Stewart Varner, ECDS team member and digital librarian.  

ECDS also recently co-sponsored a presentation with the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence; the talk featured Pennsylvania State University Dean Christopher Long discussing his experiences creating an enhanced ebook.
