4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 When I want to find something, I have a lot of places to look! Developing a better data hygiene will help me immeasurably as a researcher and as a project manager. I’m not sure what to say beyond that than OMGYES.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 I will use the Google Site as the place for new materials, and will be sure to link from it to outside and older materials.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 I don’t know if I should plan for archiving social media content, or if I should just set up a system for tracking it–keeping track of metrics like followers and engagement.

7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 I plan to be consistent about which email address I use and create a label for correspondence about the project, including in the shared account.

  • 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
