Description

What does a post-bac in digital scholarship do? This talk will give participants an idea of the type of work a post-bac can be expected to undertake, as well as a perspective on the types of challenges a non-computer science student may face when first getting into the field. Aimed at anyone who is interested in developing student or post-bac positions, this talk takes a critical lens to the practice of teaching oneself and the imperative to “make” digital scholarship. It asks, “what does it mean to make digital scholarship open and accessible outside of the academy or to non-experts?” and resists simple or quick fixes.
