The Open Knowledge Practicum at DHSI (OKP@DHSI) is a 3-day program leading up to the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) and is part of our Open Knowledge Program. It was launched in 2017 and is held in partnership with the University of Victoria Libraries and the Faculty of Humanities. Fellows develop a well-defined project related to their work at DHSI with an open knowledge component, such as contributions to Wikipedia or an open access resource. The OKP@DHSI program is open to DHSI attendees and instructors and DHSI Conference and Colloquium presenters and runs for three full days in the ETCL. Some honorariums are available, comprising four-night accommodations in UVic’s residence rooms and a per diem for the duration of the fellowship.
