HUM2DH3: Introduction to Digital Humanities

Winter Term: Wednesday 1:30 to 4:20 / Syllabus

This course will introduce students to digital humanities research methods and tools. Students will learn about three primary impulses that drive digital scholarship: analysis, preservation, and resource creation. They will work with existing digital resources, learning to use and assess them effectively; and will also digitize material to create new resources while learning about copyright, intellectual property, and accessibility.

3 unit(s) / Prerequisite(s): Registration in Level II or above of a program in the Faculty of Humanities

Electronics for the Rest of Us

Winter Term: Thursday Januay 26 – Saturday January 28 / Workshop Outline / Registration

An undergraduate course in the experiential learning track co-sponsored by the Integrated Science (iSci) and Arts & Science (ArtSci) programs here at McMaster. In a nutshell it’s a six-session course where the students learn the basics of the Arduino platform–both coding and electronics–and create a demonstration project. This year, we’re offering 10 seats to students outside of iSci and ArtSci.
