Types of consulting help offered
Requests are welcome for help on any DLA-related issues. Some example project types include:
- course-integrated projects or assignments
- library-based instructional initiatives and resources for scholarship
- campus-wide initiatives involving staff, faculty, or student
Consulting will be provided by AMICAL’s Mellon Digital Liberal Arts Fellow, Dr. Najla Jarkas, who has extensive experience in integrating digital methods and tools in Academic Writing and Literature courses in addition to integrating Digital Humanities projects into course design.
The Fellow will provide consulting directly for cases that fall within her areas of expertise; for other areas, she will facilitate consulting with another AMICAL colleague or external expert with relevant expertise.
More specifically, the Fellow can help individuals or teams to:
- Clarify project challenges and identify, or help research, solutions
- Develop plans for digital projects (including scoping, sustainability, etc.)
- Offer suggestions on integrating digital methods into course design
- Identify suitable professional development opportunities in digital methods and tools
- Develop collaborative digital projects — in particular by
- facilitating connections with potential partners
- providing guidance on the development of the collaborative project
- Take advantage of other forms of support AMICAL offers through its DLA Programs (e.g., participation in our DLA Cohort program or assistance with preparing DLA-focused Small Grants)
- Address other questions/challenges related to Digital Liberal Arts
The Mellon Fellow can also offer 1–to–1 workshops upon request on the following topics:
