2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 I know it’s been a little while since I’ve sent you a list of links (wink wink), but I wanted to give you a sneak preview of content coming out in the new GC Digital Initiatives website (which will streamline all the many many many GC digital things available — hurray!).

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Welcome to this nifty table I made of blog posts, handouts, workshop outlines, and tutorial slide decks created by GC Digital Fellows! I broke the posts down into some umbrella categories.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 If you are still coming up with your dataset — check the first category!

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 If you are past that and know what you want to do — check out mapping or text analysis or programming!

7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 If you now want to put your project on the web– check out web development and if you want it to look nice– try design!

8 Leave a comment on paragraph 8 0 These resources are good starting places– content ranges from pretty basic to more advanced. (I recommend Getting the Most out of a Humble Technology: Word Search).

9 Leave a comment on paragraph 9 0 Good luck, and remember — Digital Fellow Office Hours are Tuesdays 2-4.

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at
