CFP: Survey on Digital Humanities/Digital Skills Workshops

The Implementing New Knowledge Environment (INKE) invites people who have taken part in a digital humanities or digital skills workshop in the last five years (2019-2023) as a learner, instructor, and/or organizer to participate in a survey about Digital Humanities/Digital Skills Workshops. From the survey instrument:

If you HAVE ATTENDED, TAUGHT, and/or ORGANIZED digital humanities/digital skills workshops, in person or online, between the years 2019-2023, we want to hear from you! We’ll ask you to provide feedback about your experiences, including benefits and/or challenges, and your opinions on these workshops, as well as your thoughts on future workshops.

If you have NOT ATTENDED, TAUGHT, or ORGANIZED workshops between 2019-2023 (or ever!), we still want to hear from you! We will ask you to provide feedback about factors that may have impacted your decisions not to participate in the past and about your thoughts on future workshops.

The survey should take no more than 20 minutes, depending on your responses and interests. This research has been approved by the ethics boards at the Universities of Ottawa, Guelph, and Victoria. This survey is supported by the Integrating New Knowledge Environments partnership (, PI Ray Siemens, University of Victoria) and The Canadian Certificate in Digital Humanities/Certificat canadien en Humanités Numériques (cc:DH/HN).

The survey is headed by Bridget Moynihan (University of Ottawa) in collaboration with Kelly Hughes (University of Guelph). The survey is supervised by Laura Estill (St. Francis Xavier University), Kim Martin (University of Guelph), Susan Brown (University of Guelph), and Constance Crompton (University of Ottawa).

We use the following terms in this survey:

  • Workshops: Training that occurs outside of specific degree or diploma programs. The workshops can take place online or in person. They can happen on campuses, in public libraries, at conferences, at dedicated institute events, or elsewhere. They can be as short as an hour or take place over multiple weeks.
  • Digital Humanities Workshops: Any workshop that was described by the organizers/instructors as a digital humanities workshop, whether it was teaching strictly technical skills or skills that support digital humanities work, such as project management.
  • Digital Skills Workshops: Workshops that are not labeled as digital humanities specifically, but teach digital skills and contribute to digital humanities practices.
