The course consists of five online modules that introduce students to some basic concepts and essentials of computer science such as cryptography, steganography, accessibility, databases and user experience, followed by a practical experience with working on digital historical databases. It will be followed by a hands-on workshop at the premises of Fondazione 1563 in Torino, presenting case studies from the foundation.
General learning objectives for PhD candidates
The aim of the course is to provide the basic skills knowledge and competences to PhD candidates in order to understand the computing background of digital archival databases so that they can develop, modify and administrate them.
During the final workshop, the candidates will work on actual databases with images and text, provided by Fondazione 1563 per l’Arte e la Cultura and will have their own personal projects to complete.
Further, the course emphasizes the development of skills related to STEM, and in particular computer science and software engineering.
