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 […]

After our group meeting with Kate Singer, discussed in this week’s group post, the remainder of the week has involved a good deal of housekeeping as project director and project manager. The community management and development teams continue to work, mainly, in their own spheres, so I’m trying to stay up-to-date with both. Iuri has […]

end/line Weekly Diary: 26 March

  • 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
