From community archives to geographic information system (GIS) mapping, Holy Cross faculty and students are involved in innovative digital work. Digital scholarship opportunities on campus foster a creative and collaborative learning experience within the world of new technologies.
Holy Cross supports new and exciting research, both inside and outside the classroom. This research promotes the ongoing process of exploration and discovery that is central to a Jesuit education.
Faculty are provided the space to conduct digital scholarship in their field with the help of Holy Cross students, who benefit from the unique experience of real-world research. Students have the opportunity to learn new technologies and showcase their digital skills through group and individual projects. With support from departments such as Educational Design and Digital Media Services and Dinand Library, digital and emerging scholarship is able to thrive on Holy Cross’ campus.
Educational Design and Digital Media Services
Educational Design and Digital Media Services is the campus’ hub for all things digital within the classroom. On the project page, students can browse scholarly projects created by fellow students, and faculty can find inspiration from the work fostered by fellow faculty members. From podcasts to mapping projects, the department provides the support needed for innovative digital work in a classroom setting.
Dinand Library provides additional support for faculty who are looking to expand their personal research into a wide range of digital projects. On Dinand’s Digital and Emerging Scholarship page, faculty members can find information on web hosting, digital tools, research data management, and other on-campus resources. They can also schedule a one-on-one consultation appointment with a librarian to discuss opportunities for their project.
