Digital Scholarship: Home

Digital Scholarship is scholarly activity that makes extensive use of one or more of the new possibilities for teaching, learning and research opened up by the unique affordances of digital tools and methods.

Digital Scholarship in C+I

Create + Innovate provides support for digital projects that enhance the research, teaching, and learning mission of Miami University, including support for Digital Humanities. We provide support for course based project development including the planning and integration of scaffolded assignments, rubrics and instruction. We can help identify resources such as appropriate platforms, an existing corpus of texts, images, data sets and other materials that meet your research or pedagogical needs. We can also assist with the identification, development and application of tools for a variety of tasks such as data visualization, mapping, text mining, and transcription. 

We can help:

  •  Advise and/or collaborate on project development, planning and grant writing
  •  Identify the right tools, platforms and data sources for your project
  •  Develop, acquire, host, setup, customize any of the above
  •  Provide training and support in project planning, content and data management
  •  Assist with integration of digital projects into your curriculum
  •  Brainstorm options for your DH research or pedagogy
  •  Identify resources and collaborators
