What You’ll Learn
The U-M Library Digital Scholarship Certificate for graduate students offers concentrations in research or pedagogy. The core curriculum is the same, but the chosen concentration will determine elective workshops and final capstone projects.
As part of the program requirements, each participant will produce a project that demonstrates their developing expertise. If students want to learn skills in both concentrations, we recommend choosing research, since the final portfolio can accommodate teaching materials.
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will:
- Develop an understanding of digital scholarship tools, theories, and methods, as they apply to research and pedagogy
- Develop core competencies in the areas of project planning, conceptualization, and development
- Understand what constitutes effective teaching with media, and support their departments in efforts to improve digital literacy
- Have an understanding of the tools, theories, and methods of digital scholarship as they apply to research and pedagogy
- Create professional materials that they will be able to use in their job search and for career development
Participants who complete the program will receive an official certificate of completion which can be listed on a curriculum vitae or resume.
