The grant application aimed to strengthen the internationalization and digitization processes at Bard College Berlin. The project proposed the development of a sustainable and scalable learning track ...to emphasize student and faculty mobility, blended learning, as well as progressive acquisition of methodological and digital skills among faculty, and building students’ digital capacities in the areas of humanities and social sciences, with specific deliverables and learning outcomes. An essential component of all courses in the curriculum design proposed was the use of open-source digital tools in pedagogical contexts.

The Digital Humanities Techniques for Academics workshop series organized by Berliner Gazette experts were aimed at helping teaching staff incorporate digital technologies (Open Source) into classroom... teaching and research. I particularly enjoyed the hands-on sessions on short- or long-form storytelling with open source content management system Wordpress and the podcasting session with the free software Audacity in classroom teaching. I found it also very inspiring and thought-provoking to discuss student web-based projects and assignments, grading grids, and to explore a range of tools for data visualization and communication of quantitative messages.
Gained insights from multiple perspectives on the landscape of scholarly communication in the humanities (from open access for books and peer review processes, to libraries as scholarly makerspaces), ...as well as several hands-on workshops on copyright issues and open licensing in the humanities and open data management best practice (FAIR principles).

Das Hochschulforum Digitalisierung veranstaltete am 11. September 2017 in Berlin ein Netzwerktreffen für Akteur*innen aus dem Bereich des digitalen Lehrens und Lernens. Besonders interessant fand ich ...den Workshop „A Domain of One’s Own“ mit Dr. Jane Brückner, PD Dr. Markus Deinmann, und Christian Friedrich (alle drei von Leuphana Universität). Dabei war es möglich, sich mit Kolleg*innen aus anderen Universitäten über die Stärken, Schwächen, Möglichkeiten und Risiken von dem Projekt „A Domain of One’s Own“ auszutauschen.
OpenCon focuses on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data. In 2016 OpenCon took place in Berlin and it was hosted by the Humboldt University. The event kicked off with a hackathon where all partic...ipants worked hands-on on reproducibility hacks. Anna Krystalli and I tested and fully reproduced (combining LaTeX and R via knitr) figures, tables, analyses, inline quantitative elements, and text for a science paper. The results are logged on github (at: https://github.com/annakrystalli/OpenConBerlin_ReproHack/issues/6). The OpenCon introduced many digital tools useful for teaching and learning, and featured several highlights. Among them, a keynote presentation held by Julia Reda MEP, a presentation on the state of the art of open access in text and data mining (Natalia Manola), and an exciting hands-on workshop with Peter Kraker, Maxi Schramm and Asura Enkhbayar from Open Knowledge Maps.
Participation in the "13th Berlin Open Access Conference. Building Capacity for the Transformation," organized by the Max Planck Digital Library on March 22, 2017.
Open Access 2020 (OA2020) is a „glo...bal alliance of academic and research organizations working to transform the current subscription publishing system, an obsolete legacy of the print era, to new open access publishing models that ensure articles are open and re-usable and that the costs associated with their dissemination are transparent and economically sustainable.” (https://oa2020.org) The conference strengthened its international network of representatives from various countries, institutions, as well as stakeholder groups who are involved in the process of building capacity for transforming the field of scholarly publishing. The strategic goal is to open the scholarly communications system by rethinking OA business models.
The three-day Koha Hackfest was organized by Mirko Tietgen in Berlin, at Büro 2.0 Open Source Co-Working Space. It included very useful introductions to Koha development for non developers (e.g. how d...oes a patch get in Koha and how to test new developments in sandboxes, without the need for a full development setup), and a very interesting workshop on the data toolkit Catmandu, which is a command line tool to access and convert data from your digital library, research services or any other open data sets.
