Day of Digital Learning (RSA & CRRS)

March 16, 2019 at 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Cosponsored with the Renaissance Society of America, there will be a Day of Digital Learning on Saturday March 16, the day immediately before the RSA Annual Meeting (which is taking place in Toronto from March 17-19).

Organized by members of the Digital and Multimedia Committee of the RSA, the Day of Digital Learning will feature a varied menu of sessions involving hands-on, participatory work with digital tools and resources. Working under the direction of scholars, librarians, and IT specialists, participants will have a chance to see how their own research and teaching might benefit from digital concepts and tools, and how to develop digital literacies that will help us all understand the new tools of the trade.

The DDL sessions are free, and open to anyone interested regardless of affiliation with RSA or CRRS, but since space is limited please register in advance. The schedule is presented below; more information is available on the event site hosted by the RSA.
