DHCF 101R  Foundations in DH Project Development,
Monday - Friday 9:00am-3pm cst June 3-14, 2024

The purpose of the Micro-credential in Digital Humanities program is to apply successful strategies to the planning, implementation, and development of DH research projects and funding proposals. The goal of Foundations in DH Project Development is to teach researchers successful methods to produce a planning grant proposal for a UH Internal Award or an external planning grant to develop and execute their research project.

Topics covered include planning your idea, plan development, understanding data, strategizing asset management, understanding labor, introduction to grant writing, and developing a data management plan.

All tenured, tenure-track, or promotion eligible non-tenure track faculty members who carry a full-time faculty appointment and who have attained the terminal degree in their field are eligible. PhD students are also eligible, provided a letter of commitment from their faculty advisor and a project scenario that integrates a refined research question. Participant eligibility for the Micro-credential in the Digital Humanities Program, therefore, aligns with the eligibility criteria for the Small Grant Award and New Faculty Award.

The purpose of the Micro-credential in the Digital Humanities program is to introduce students to the concepts and competencies that are core to DH work, preparing students to plan and implement their own project or participate in an ongoing DH research project.

This program is available to active University of Houston undergraduate students interested in research or with an idea that incorporates an element of digital scholarship.

Students who complete the Micro-credential in the Digital Humanities badges gain access to the full range of services and infrastructure offered by the Digital Humanities Core facility and become part of growing cohorts supported by HPE DSI and UH Libraries, aimed at nurturing new research and scholarship.
