Google Scholar Workshop

A little over a month ago I attended a Google Scholar workshop on what it is and how to create your profile. It was an eye-opening experience, mostly because it made me aware that I have absolutely nothing available to go on my profile! I’m still pretty young and new in the academia scene, so […]

With our final papers due within a week, I thought I might make a post about something that could be useful for anyone writing a project proposal. A big part about a lot of digital projects is the database. Representing that in a written format can be difficult, but luckily there is a way! I’m […]

The New and Improved HTML

Near the end of the last class, there was a discussion about markup and why we use HTML in web design. I wanted to share a little about what I know then, but decided that a more detailed blog post would be more appropriate. A short comment on it in class wouldn’t scratch the surface. […]

  • 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
