end/line Weekly Diary: 30 April

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Approaching 17 May, we remain in a relatively good position, though we have a fair amount of work to complete in disparate areas. See below for more details on each of these.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Presentation. While we’ll use Wednesday’s class to run through our 10–15 minute presentation, I want to ensure that everyone will have an opportunity to comment on his contribution to the project. Lisa’s suggestion to highlight process as much as product seems like a good means towards accomplishing this. While I can discuss the theoretical and pedagogical influences driving end/line, both the community management and development teams performed tons of intellectual work throughout the semester. Therefore, I’d like to focus on streamlining our demonstration of the app as much as possible, or integrating it with discussions of how outreach, publicity, front-end, and back-end considerations led us to the current versions of its features.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Grant. Proposing a grant to the NEH seems intense, but we’re excited to review all of the items we marked as nice-to-have or out-of-scope and see how they could fit into this. Also, this past week I’ve started to draft a potential budget for a Level II Digital Advancement Grant, which has allowed me to focus on the material needs of our project if we want to enhance, scale, or sustain it.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Beta Testing. The first round of beta testing, at Ryerson University in Toronto, was informative and helped us better frame the app as a pedagogical tool on the home, upload, and encoding pages through Bootstrap’s modals plugin. Now, with those changes in place, we’ve lined up approximately twenty more testers, thanks to Iuri’s outreach work over the course of semester. We’re all excited to learn their thoughts over the next two weeks.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Back-End Solidity and Front-End Extras. Brian’s finished much of the in-scope back-end work for the project and will be working on some nice-to-have features (for example, validation against the TEI schema) now. Greg’s finished all of the pages necessary for Brian’s work, so I’m hoping that we can collaborate on an interactive “How It Works” page that explains sign-up/sign-in, upload, encoding, submission, and comparison steps. (I’d like to use a scrolling template if we can find one compatible with the current site.)

  • 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 cuny.is/dps17.
