Each fall and spring semester, the DMC offers a series of non-credit workshops on a variety of topics. Workshops are generally one to two hours, hands-on sessions that provide an overview of a particular piece of hardware, software or equipment, or a set of tips and techniques in a particular discipline or medium. DMC workshops are free and open to the entire JHU community, although preference is given to fill-time students on the Homewood campus.

Check out the workshops and events we are offering by clicking and using your JHED to log into our member wiki to view our Fall 2014 schedule.

Lab Coaches

The DMC employs a team of student Lab Coaches to work one-on-one with lab users in such areas as learning new skills and techniques, becoming authorized to use sophisticated DMC equipment, project planning and troubleshooting. Lab Coaches are extremely skilled and experienced in their specialty area and are well-suited to peer-to-peer guidance and training.
