Ramping Up to the Presentation and What Comes After

In preparation for presenting, the ZUC group made all the last changes to the site and transition from test site to live site.

The choice to separate community management and technical developement of end/line has been very useful: in this way, these two aspects – both fundamental – worked in parallel, reaching their goals. The technical developement team did an excellent job in the last weeks: both Brian and Greg contributed to build an app that could now […]

end/line Weekly Diary: 23 April

  • 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
