External Training

Vitae: The Digital Researcher. This annual day-long event aims to help researchers make the most of new technologies and social media in their research.

Humanities 3.0: Tooling up for DH is a website based at Stanford which introduces Humanities researchers to some of the possibilities for digital tools, programs, and methods to empower and enhance their scholarship in the humanities. It offers a useful overview and practical way in to exploring DH.

The Digital Methods Initiative. The Digital Methods course consists of seven units with digital research protocols, specially developed tools, tutorials as well as sample projects. In particular this course is dedicated to how else links, Websites, engines and other digital objects and spaces may be studied, if methods were to follow the medium, as opposed to importing standard methods from the social sciences more generally, including surveys, interviews and observation.

Digital.Humanities@Oxford Summer School 

The Digital.Humanities@Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is an annual Digital Humanities training event which usually takes place in July at the University of Oxford. DHOxSS delegates are introduced to a range of topics suitable for researchers, project managers, research assistants, and students who are interested in the creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or publication of digital data for the humanities. Each delegate follows one of our 5-day workshops and supplements this with plenary guest lectures by experts in their fields. DHOxSS is a collaboration for Digital.Humanities@Oxford between the University of Oxford's IT Services, the Oxford e-Research Centre (OeRC), the Bodleian Libraries, and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities. DHOxSS is directed by Dr James Cummings from IT Services.
