end/line Weekly Diary: 14 May

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Currently, I’m focused on preparing everything for our presentation on Wednesday. This past week, I built out a Google Slides template that incorporates our visual identity—it uses our color scheme, typography, and logo—and scaffolds the presentation by discussing its humanistic origins, providing a demo, and explaining the process of technology decisions and community building that went into end/line.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 At the same time, however, I’m also focused on preparing everything that comes after the presentation. We have, for example, our NEH Digital Advancement Grant proposal to complete by 26 May. With this task, I’m trying to learn from my previous mistakes (see “Letting go…” in our 7 May group post for more reflection on this) and collaborate with my team members. Michael has edited the initial draft, Greg has added an innovation statement and will review (with Brian) the data management plan. Everyone has invested a good deal of work this semester, and can articulate certain aspects of the grant proposal better than I can.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 I’ve had to pause some other items, however, to accomplish the items above. Greg put together a compelling, fluid “How It Works” page that embeds some screen recordings I edited to show potential users how to search, upload, encode, validate, submit, and compare—the site’s six major features or functions. The front-end framework for the page is fantastic and modern, but I need to build out the copy a bit more. Ditto, with the “Contact” page. (Maybe these are two good summer projects.) And I haven’t even had the chance to review some of the additional feedback that Iuri has received from our beta testers.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Anyways, it’s important and necessary (as project lead and manager) to prioritize our end-of-the-semester tasks. Still, I can’t wait to keep moving this project forward, regardless of whether or not I’m in school.

  • 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.
