We also collaborate with faculty and CTL staff on the creation of assignments in digital scholarship and digital research. Explore this page to learn more about our activities in this area. Instructors, we encourage you to contact your liaison if you are interested in working with the library on digital scholarship related learning outcomes.

Pedagogy Projects

Open Source for Digital Communication & Learning Objects

Within this book, you will learn the necessary skills to create professional live streaming events, podcasts, and video content. Each section will provide a guide to understanding each of these open source technologies and methods of using them. While this book has a focus on digital communication and learning objects, there is no single way to create any of these media types. This book will provide you with techniques and features that are useful in the development of both digital communication and the development of learning objects.


Nearby Studies

Nearby Studies is a joint program developed between the UTSC Departments of Historical and Cultural Studies, History and Women's and Gender Studies Programs and the Cities Studies Program in Geography. Through undergraduate courses that focus on community engaged learning and community-based research initiatives involving story telling and special project initiatives, Nearby Studies aims to retell the story of Scarborough from within, working in partnerhip across disciplines and with community. 


Hogarth in Context

A website is dedicated to William Hogarth (1697-1764), a well-known eighteenth-century painter and engraver. Content for this website is created by students in third and fourth year undergraduate English courses at the University of Toronto Scarborough, beginning in 2015. Students annotate the works of William Hogarth, providing context for his works. Contact Anne Milne  to learn more. 


DS Open Educational Resources

Since 2014, we have been working in partnership with Faculty, Liaison Librarians, iSchool practicum and humanities graduate students to create digital scholarship learning objects for use in the classroom. Topics vary widely, but the resulting objects are designed as introductions to commonly requested topics in digital scholarship.  All modules are collaboratively maintained and licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
