Hunter Library and the Technology Commons are seeking speakers for 7-minute lightning talks on the topics of Digital Humanities, digital scholarship, and the Maker movement. This is a fun, informal event for the WCU community to share and learn from each other. Let’s spark innovation and collaboration on campus!

Not sure what to talk about? How about…

  • Map making in the classroom
  • Using microcontrollers to collect data
  • Creating digital exhibits
  • Recording and editing podcasts
  • Making infographics and data visualizations
  • Other projects that use digital tools or embrace the maker/DIY ethic

What’s a lightning talk? It’s short (less than 7 minutes), the slides are done
Pecha Kucha style (20 slides, shown for 20 seconds each), and feature mostly images (as few words as possible).
