Digital methods and resources enable new and valuable modes of inquiry, collaboration, research and teaching. At CREATE, we work towards supporting the organic adoption of digital methods and resources within existing course offerings at the Uva Humanities. CREATE researchers and engineers participate in various activities that map, consolidate, coordinate and extend teaching in digital methods and resources teaching at the UvA humanities.
Below, we provide a list of current and past projects.
