We are especially proud of how much exposure we’ve received in terms of conference presentations, lectures, and articles.

Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (51,000 CAD over two years)
The TLEF was created to enrich student learning by supporting innovative and effective educational enhancements and the flexible learning component supports projects which enable pedagogical and logistical flexibility to help students learn outside of the traditional classroom setting. This grant funds a number of student positions to oversee the everyday running of the project, the digitization of the various collections, inputting and managing metadata, and the creation of open-access, online teaching modules which can then be integrated into the classroom both at UBC and in the wider academic community.
Field Museum Visiting Scholarship ($2,790 USD)
-Awarded to C. Gardner and N. Kraus to digitize cuneiform tablets using the Ortery 3D Photogrammetry workbench system.
Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies Institutional Grant (100 GBP)
Archaeological Institute of America Outstanding Work in Digital Archaeology Honorable Mention: https://www.archaeological.org/awards/digitalarch
“These two projects were selected as honorable mentions, as they fulfill the mission of the Archaeological Institute of America to bring archaeology to a wider public and to educate the public about the archaeological heritage and shared past of humanity. The Award Committee also commend these projects for being collaborative and student-led. By engaging with digital technology for both research and outreach, the work of these students will help to bring archaeology to the next generation of scholars and students, as well as to the interested public.”
