General Notes

For the Fall semester, sessions will be once a week, lasting one hour in the DSC Media Lounge when it's available. They will be on Wednesdays from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM. Each session will have a focus, but projects and student discussion will always take priority.

More information on DH Open Office Hours can be found at the DSG website's Open Office Hours page.

Outreach

Idea of an "Open Office Hours Roadshow" component where, once a semester, we do a version of Office Hours in a room in a particular department (Holmes Hall in English / History, etc.)

We're trying to be more inclusive of CAMD, so we'll be having a series of Open Office Hours dedicated to things like social science and journalism.

We also eventually hope to have some resource people in to do Q&As about things like GIS and data viz.
