1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Welp, next Wednesday is it. We’re getting excited to present our work to a larger audience, but we still have some last-minute items to address.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Presentation. This week’s in-class rehearsal went slightly better than the previous week’s. We have a well-defined deck that incorporates our visual identity (color scheme, typography, and logo) and clearly delineates the numerous and diverse contributions that made this project. At the same time, however, we can definitely hone our presentation skills further. As this Wednesday’s class approached 6:15, I was furiously recording Lisa’s feedback on our scaffolding, demoing, and public presenting skills. We clocked in at eleven minutes (by my count), though I expect that to expand slightly as we all focus on slowing down and elaborating on the 17th.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 XML Validation. “What schema does end/line validate against,” was one question from beta testing, and, since we received this, Brian has been interested in building a more sophisticated XML validation feature. This has been difficult. Jeremy helped us troubleshoot during Wednesday’s class, but he also concluded that we’d need a true, technically-gifted TEI expert to help us solve our problems. Fortunately, Brian had already built a good feature that determines whether or not an encoding has valid XML. We’ll leave the more sophisticated work for the future.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 The NEH Grant. Though I attempted to re-use as much of my initial proposal as possible for this, it has become clear that we need to devote more time towards our end-of-the-semester NEH grant proposal. Obviously, we’ll need to follow the NEH’s formatting guidelines (I moved the document from GitHub to Google Drive to make this easier), but we’ll also need to improve our narrative, advocate for our budget, and anticipate objections to our approach. This will be a full group effort, and one to focus on intensely after our presentation.

  • 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.
