Five Colleges Omeka Workshop for Faculty – Tuesday, May 30th

The Five Colleges of Ohio Digital Collaborations Group would like to invite you to an Omeka workshop open to faculty from all five colleges on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 from 10am – 2pm. It will be held at The College of Wooster in the Timken Science Library Lab. Lunch will be served in Andrews Library in CoRE.

Omeka, an open source web publishing platform, has grown in popularity as a resource for engaging students in curating online exhibits, developing digital literacies, and practicing scholarly communication. The workshop will focus on the use of Omeka for class-centered digital projects, but we will also present a general introduction on using it to create online exhibits. During lunch, Dr. Jordan Biro Walters, Visiting Assistant Professor in History, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, will share her experiences with Omeka at Wooster. If you are a previous Ohio 5 Omeka Faculty Workshop attendee, please note that this workshop is very similar to those given at Denison and Kenyon in the past. Due to space limitations, registration will be capped at 25 participants and priority will be given to new attendees.

Lunch, mileage reimbursement, and a $100 stipend will be provided to those attending the workshop.

If you are interested in attending, please register by Friday, May 19, 2017 by completing the registration form. If you have any questions please contact Catherine Newton (canewton@wooster.edu).
