Notes

This poster discusses scaffolding for digital curation eductaion. As the demand for digital curation skills continues to grow, so does the need for an efficient way to teach digital curators how to interact with Unix based on computers and servers at the console and terminal level. The major challenge with teaching these skills is the amount of time it takes for instruction since there are too many fundamentals to teach in a weekend workshop yet not enough for an entire course. Thus, the authors proposed a week long scaffolding course to teach students the fundamental tools and processes to successfully interact in a Unix environment. The authors will teach students how to perform commands such as changing directories, moving and copying files, compressing folders, and altering permissions in the Unix environment. This will give students some basic preparation for digital curation work and for the (4) intermediate and advanced courses in digital curation and data management offered by the iCamp Project at the University of North Texas.
