What to teach Digital Humanities students about Phaidra - Thomas Wallnig


Knowledge about institutional repositories is increasingly becoming a mandatory feature of Digital Humanities teaching: not only do students (and thus future researchers) need to understand the workflows behind the sustainable storage of their research data; they also need to be aware of where their institutional repository stands within the broader ecosystem of tools and infrastructures. Against that background, the presentation will argue for including data management knowledge into regular Digital Humanities teaching, and provide some examples of how to put this into practice.
