 It Takes a Village: Building and Supporting an Undergraduate Digital Scholarship Fellowship: Courtney Paddick & Carrie Pirmann
In summer 2017, Bucknell University launched the Digital Scholarship Summer Research Fellows (DSSRF) program, a librarian-led initiative which introduces students to digital scholarship tools and methodologies, and equips them with the skills necessary to undertake an independent, digitally-based research project. Collaboration is key in supporting the program; the facilitators rely on a model of distributed expertise, drawing on the knowledge and skills of staff across our Library & IT organization to lead workshops on topics such as TEI and data visualization. The fellowship also integrates inter-institutional collaboration, through meet-ups with students and facilitators from similar programs, reinforcing the notion of building a community of practice. 

Enhancing undergraduate digital research methods and skills by connecting  (co-)curricular learning opportunities: Celeste Sharpe, Sarah Calhoun, Austin Mason, & Andrew Wilson
Students at Carleton are increasingly looking for opportunities to learn digital methods and skills that are not yet widespread in the formalized curriculum. Employment opportunities offered by the Humanities Center, Library, and Academic Technology provide a range of co-curricular learning experiences—including front-end and back-end web development, research ethics and accessibility training, and 3D modeling/printing opportunities—that our students can connect to their in-class research and digital project assignments. We will give examples of how we support student learning and research inquiry across the curriculum and how our student workers have leveraged skills learned on the job to enhance their own scholarship.
