Attention Campers!

This summer, Humanities Commons will honor one of the most time-honored traditions of the season: summer camp.

That’s right- we’re hosting our very own virtual summer camp for users old and new. The HC Summer Camp will be particularly helpful to anyone who has wanted to take advantage of our platform, but either hasn’t found the time or isn’t sure where to begin. HC Summer Camp will give you deadlines and guidance to help you achieve your ideal digital presence.  

“Campers” will be encouraged to complete a challenge every other week. For example, our first challenge will be focused on the Humanities Commons profile page. To complete Challenge #1, campers will either create a Humanities Commons profile or improve and update their pre-existing HC profile. Please see the bottom of this post to see our schedule and challenges.

During the two weeks leading up to each challenge’s deadline, you will be able to find instruction and guidance here on the HC team blog. We will also track and celebrate the work our campers are doing on Twitter as well as the blog. We hope that you will not only enjoy the prestige of being a star camper, but that you will find inspiration from the exemplary work of others.

Please check out our schedule and challenges located under the “Schedule” tab.

Successful campers will enter the Fall semester with an impressive profile, personal site, a larger readership, new networking connections and a supportive academic community.

Please let us (and the world) know that you’re going to attend the Humanities Commons Summer Camp this year by commenting on this blog post and on whatever social media platforms you use. Please make sure to use our hashtag #HCSummerCamper!
