Centre for Digital Humanities


The Centre for Digital Humanities aims to promote digital literacy amongst staff-members, and therefore compensates attendance to the CDH courses and workshops (not the webinars) in terms of DCU (22 hours = 1 DCU). The DCU’s will be automatically settled with your department at the end of each course.
