  2. 2. 2 2001-2006, 2011 Barnard College (New York, NY) First Year English: Reinventing Literary History Project Summary: Developed to accompany Barnard College's First Year English program, this site curated a variety of resources for the English Department’s standardized First Year English curricula. Begun in 2001, completed in 2003, and periodically updated through 2006, the site featured art galleries, primary and secondary sources, and links to carefully selected external web sites. Resources on plagiarism, manuscript style, and museum tours were added as the site grew. In late 2011, an effort was made to move some of the content to Barnard’s Drupal-based enterprise-level CMS.

Funding for this project came from a Ford Foundation “Difficult Dialogues” grant. This wiki is no longer publicly available. Technologies: MediaWiki, Photoshop 2005-2006 AmeriCorps: Community Technology Empowerment Project Agency Assignment: Project for Pride in Living (Minneapolis, MN)
  3. 3. 3 Project Summary: During my year of national service in the AmeriCorps program, I designed four entry- level technology curricula for underserved populations, conducted those classes and gave one-on-one tutorials, created easy-to-use web pages for job seekers new to computers, oversaw software and hardware purchases for a new training center, trained agency staff on assistive technologies and accessibility, and trained both staff and agency clients in multimedia production and editing.

The second time we worked together, I assisted his students in the development of a wiki, which presented their research on local public health issues. Unfortunately, the wiki is no longer publicly available. Technologies: Google Groups, MediaWiki 2008 Macaulay Honors College at City College, CUNY (New York, NY) Honors Seminar: The Arts in New York City—Prof. Brandon Judell Project Summary: The faculty member, new to WordPress, experimented with a blogging component in his seminar.

  7. 7. 7 Project Summary: As part of a developmental writing course with a standardized curriculum based on folk tales and fables, students wrote their own personal family stories and myths. These were edited, read aloud to the class, then re-edited, with four chosen to serve as source material for small group video projects. The chosen stories were then scripted, storyboarded, and filmed. The results were burned to DVD for students to share with their families.

We also explained how the project embodied specific pedagogical principles and shared some examples of student work. The video project itself, Snapshot NYC, involves the entire Macaulay first-year class each year. On October 11, each student takes a photograph of something or someone in NYC, and submits it to a central web site. Student curators then sift through and organize the photography for a creative exhibition, which is hung in the Macaulay Honors College building each December. On the day of the exhibition, the first-year class returns and uses phones, cameras, and other technologies to make creative responses to the exhibition, “re-curating” their colleagues’ photos with a new and deeper perspective. While the students originally made videos, they can now choose from a variety of technologies and “games” for their re-curation effort.

  8. 8. 8 2009-2013 Macaulay Honors College, CUNY (New York, NY) Honors Seminar: Honors Thesis Colloquium—Prof. Lee Quinby (2009-2013), Prof. Steven Isenberg (2013) Project Summary: As the technologist assigned to the interdisciplinary Honors Thesis Colloquium in 2009- 10, 2011-12, 2012-13, and the Fall 2013 semester, I oversaw the iterative growth of the use of technology to support year-long senior thesis research in a wide variety of humanities and social sciences disciplines. While in 2009-10, most students used their thesis web sites as a repository for drafts and as a way to collect early feedback, by 2011-12, most used it as a means of creatively presenting multimedia that extended the reach of their written projects, including their presentation materials from the National Conference on Undergraduate Research and local intra-CUNY conferences. We also began to add newsfeeds on their research topics, so that their sites became spaces to retrieve timely information. In 2012-13, students began to create original digital research that expanded the scholarly impact of their work, including data visualizations and interactive timelines. Eventually, I taught the Spring 2014 semester of this course as a fully “digital” senior thesis seminar—explained further on in this packet. As a technologist, the workshops I gave to students in this course included regular sessions on the integration of quantitative data into research writing, creating effective presentation materials, information architecture and WordPress skills, and techniques for effective online research.

  11. 11. 11 2011 Macaulay Honors College, CUNY (New York, NY) Honors Seminar: Shaping the Future of New York City—Prof. Richard Blot Project Summary: Because the faculty member was teaching three sections of the same seminar—two of which met in Manhattan, while a third met in the Bronx—we developed mailing lists he could use to distribute information to one or more sections of the course as needed. I also conducted a workshop on effective online research with both Manhattan sections. Technologies: Google Apps 2011, 2013 Macaulay Honors College, CUNY (New York, NY) Instructional Technology Fellowship Alumni Data Project Instructional Technology Fellowship Career Resources Project Summary: In 2011 I used physical and digital archives, with additional online research, to collate and present the first ever alumni data for the Macaulay Honors College’s Instructional Technology Fellowship. In 2011, this data was used to contact alumni and ask them to contribute sample employment materials for current doctoral student fellows. The resulting private web site now hosts sample CVs and resumes, cover letters for both traditional academic and alt-ac positions, job search narratives, and recordings of the group Skype calls I organized between current fellows and alumni. In 2013, I updated the data, and a networking listserv was created for all fellowship alumni. The career resources site is available to current fellows and fellowship alumni. Technologies: WordPress, Google Apps, listserv archives, Microsoft Office 2011-2013 The Fashion Institute of Technology, SUNY (New York, NY) Course: Identity in America: History and Literature, 1865-2000—Prof. Lindsey Freer
  12. 12. 12 Project Summary: This interdisciplinary survey course for non-majors was conducted as a literature course while meeting State University of New York general education requirements in history. In addition to developing a WordPress site for each course, a companion site was created in ANGEL, SUNY’s system- wide LMS. Student discussion was hosted both through structured blogging on WordPress and in ANGEL’s discussion forums. Students also created a number of digital projects under my direction, including PowerPoint, Prezi, and Flash video projects on authors and historical trends. In Fall 2013, students created interactive digital murals, each one on a different moment in the history of American education or politics. In addition, students regularly used VoiceThread to create collaborative multimedia conversations in lieu of traditional written midterms or final exams. URL: • Class web site has been archived.

All first year students were trained in the principles of Smarthistory art conversations (http://smarthistory.khanacademy.org/), as well as how to use audio recorders. They then had private after-hours access to the Brooklyn Museum, where in small groups, they collaborated on creative audio responses to works of art in the main collection. Later that semester, the students got back together with their groups for a Media Arts workshop, where they learned how to use GarageBand and iMovie to create Smarthistory-style videos featuring their recorded commentary.

In this semester, students used their written senior thesis projects as the basis for a new series of investigations into their topic, aided by digital resources. They were trained in and completed one-day projects in a suite of digital humanities tools and topics, before being turned loose to create personal digital thesis projects which not only extended the claims of their written work, but in some cases tested additional ancillary theories. The three students who completed this course scripted, directed, shot and edited an original short film, designed and coded interactive maps, and shot and and edited original photography. Their digital theses were awarded Macaulay’s Springboard Award for capstone project excellence. Class Web Site
