Upcoming ACENET Learning Events for HSS Faculty and Students

ACENET'S research consultant in humanities, arts, and social sciences (HSS) is launching a monthly Atlantic Canadian virtual forum designed to introduce digital HSS researchers to various tools and techniques. HSS faculty or students can register for the series by clicking on this sign-up link.

Each session "will include a short presentation by a researcher about their experience using a particular tool - how it works, what they’ve been able to accomplish, and the bumps along the way - followed by a Q&A session and discussion. Bring your questions and challenges."
