New professional development offerings from iDigBio's Digitization Academy.

iDigBio (the US National Science Foundation’s National Resource for Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections) is working towards a sustainable Digitization Academy that offers a set of complementary professional development courses on the topic of biodiversity specimen digitization. The offerings began in 2021 with two 4-day courses: (i) Introduction to Biodiversity Specimen Digitization and (ii) Public Participation in Digitization of Biodiversity Collections. In post-course surveys, 100% of responding participants agreed that they would recommend the respective course to others if it was offered again in the future. With this poster, we will introduce the 2022 course offerings and other Digitization Academy resources for the community. Stop by to learn more!
