In 2018, Humanities Commons honored one of the most time-honored traditions of the season: summer camp. We hosted a virtual summer camp for users old and new. It helped participants to update, build, and achieve an outstanding digital presence through HC. Please check out the discussions from Summer 2018 to see the fantastic work and thought-provoking conversations that our participants took part in last year.

In 2019, we hosted two Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshops. These events encouraged you to set aside time to update your digital presence on HC. The group is a space to ask questions, connect with other users, and see the various exciting ways that other scholars use HC to build their presence online.

You can use these materials as you update your presence on the Commons.

Feel free to complete the activities in your own time and even continue the discussions in our group.

      My own update is that it’s been really helpful to have a bit of structure and a push to update my online presence this week. Although I haven’t completed all of the tasks, I made progress (updated my profile, posted in a group I’ve been neglecting, and proofread a conference paper I plan to upload to CORE), and have a plan to finalize the CORE deposit and update my site.

      Caitlin and I have really enjoyed thinking HC features this week and we hope you benefited from the time you set aside for this workshop. Let us know how the week went for you!
