A Short Recap of Our Exciting Summer!
SUMMER INTENSIVE TRAINING 2022
Create Caribbean held its first-ever Summer Intensive training program for community partners from August 2nd to 12th 2022. The workshop was made possible by the Mellon Foundation grant awarded to the Caribbean Digital Scholarship Collective. Representatives of several partner organizations including The Chronicle Newspaper, Dominica Library and Information Service, One Seed a Day Initiative, and others participated in the training sessions. Dr. Schuyler Esprit led the team through Caribbean Studies and Digital Humanities themes. Among the digital tools learned, the participants also learned how to construct interactive maps and timelines, digital storytelling tools, and other techniques. At the end of the training, participants could apply their new digital skills in small projects for a final presentation, and all received completion certificates.
This semester, our second-year interns will be doing their internship hours with the community partners as an extension of the summer intensive program.
