Digital Research and Teaching Symposium
This symposium showcases innovative undergraduate research and celebrates the digital projects that students develop in class. The DSC has hosted the symposium since 2017. For more information on each presentation, including schedules and participants, click on the year below.
This day-long symposium considered the value of curating digital exhibits, communicating with online audiences, and implementing new digital assignments in the classroom. We also held hands-on workshops to help projects get started.
The symposium explored the possibilities of using Omeka across the university and imagining the future of digital exhibit building at the University of California. The featured keynote address by Patrick Muray-John: "How can you tailor your Omeka site, and Why?" by Patrick Murray-John, Research Assistant Professor and Omeka Developer Manager at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.
