end/line Group Post: 7 May

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 With just over one week until our presentation, we’ve had to prioritize our work and trim our wishlist to have the best possible product. See below for a rundown of where everything stands.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Development. We finally have our SSL certificate and our upgraded Heroku hosting configured—thanks Lisa and the Graduate Center! This small, but necessary, task will secure endlineproject.org and help protect user data. Brian and Greg, meanwhile, have completed nearly all of the necessary back- and front-end work. Hopefully, we’ll put together a snazzy “How It Works” page with interactive graphics in time for the 17 May presentation.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Community Management. I haven’t seen any further beta testing feedback but, given that we’re at the end of the spring semester, I’m not surprised. Perhaps over the summer we can work with some potential users. During this past week’s class, Lisa made a number of good suggestions about how to improve the branding of the site. Admittedly, much of the static content on endlineproject.org is a little outdated, so I made a few small edits to the About and Contact pages, and Iuri has written a News post about our #dayofDH testing. Michael has pitched in to help to draft our NEH grant proposal.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Presentation. Our in-class presentation was a little off-the-cuff, so I compiled a brief outline this weekend, which I hope we can build off of in the next few days.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 NEH grant proposal. We’re currently trying to re-use as much project documentation as possible to pull this together. Completing this proposal, however, will need to wait until after we deliver our presentation.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 Letting go… I realize, thankfully but belatedly, that I haven’t been the best collaborator over the past few weeks. In fact, with the presentation and grant proposal looming, I’ve probably taken on too much recently (perhaps feeling that I, as project director, needed to have a say in everything). Lisa pointed this out, and team members volunteered to do much-needed work, so I’ve made an effort since Wednesday’s class to be more direct and facilitate the contributions of others.

  • 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.
