Pace: full time (100%).

Credits: 7.5 ECTS (up to your supervisor to decide how many credits awarded at PhD level)

The course's objectives are to critically discuss digitization, digital diagnosis methods, and immersive (XR) visualisation practices in the field of heritage conservation, management, and outreach. To facilitate an in-depth understanding of the processes, the student will get hands-on-experience working with different types of digital documentation methods, and to construct interactive digital visualisations meant to communicate interpretations, context, and associated research data.

Through an integrated series of workshops, lectures, and literature seminars the student is supported to develop a reflective and critical approach to both documentation and visualisation practices, as well as an ability to communicate research data, historical sources, and ethical problems and ambiguities in the presentation of cultural heritage sites and objects.
