Digital Scholarship Day 2020

Our seventh annual Digital Scholarship Day will be the first to be held virtually. To make it more accessible to all members of the Wellesley community regardless of location or other responsibilities, this year’s Digital Scholarship “Day” will span the months of May and June, with a formal launch after projects and data have been collected for presentation.

We invite students, faculty and staff to share digital scholarship that they’ve worked on this year, at any stage of completion. Examples of topics and media could include:

  • New teaching techniques or innovative assignments you’ve developed (either before or during COVID)

  • Student research - independent studies, thesis research, innovative class work

  • Any research/presentation you had originally planned on sharing in another conference

  • Video of you talking about your work/research

  • Digital poster originally intended for Ruhlman or some other conference

  • How-to video on a topic of your choosing

If you have a project or expertise you’d like to share, please email it to and include a brief description. Submissions will be published on the DS Day website in June.
