  5. 5. Publishing 102 Kiss Principle for Technology • Keep it simple - just build on what you are doing; • Instructional design - should be about the curriculum and learning not the technology; • • Students - pick it up faster than us - we don’t need to be the expert in the technology. • Sustainability - technology does not have to be latest and greatest, but we do need to model how to use these new technology appropriately and responsibly.

  12. 12. Publishing 102: Publishing and Critiquing How Do You Make Peer Review Work ? • Set realistic goals for peer review and explain them fully (and often) to students. – Failure – students don’t know what to do. – Before, during, and after peer review sessions, take time to explain your goals for peer review. • My main goal for peer review is to emphasize to students that writing is fundamentally a form of communication between real people. • Talking face-to-face about a paper can help writers articulate what they are trying to say in their papers. • It is also a chance for real readers to tell writers what they're hearing and what isn't coming across clearly. • Do peer review more than once. – It takes practice • Guide your students with central questions and focused tasks. – "What is the writer trying to say/argue for in this piece?“ – "How can s/he make this argument more effective and persuasive?"
  13. 13. Publishing 102: Publishing and Critiquing How Do You Make Peer Review Work ?• Help your students see the difference between revision and editing. – Students must understand difference between revision and editing. • Revision - tightening up or shifting focus, clarifying purpose, cutting, adding, reorganizing, taking the conclusion as new introduction and starting over, etc. • Editing – comes later - grammar and mechanics • Encourage both honest responses and constructive advice. – Outlaw "scoulding" on each other ("You should do this..."). Instead, ask them to phrase their responses in "I" language ("I hear..., " "I'm confused when…," "I'd like to hear more about…," etc.).
  14. 14. Publishing 102: Publishing and Critiquing How Do You Make Peer Review Work ? • Give students a clear format for peer review and require written reviews (either a worksheet or a letter to the writer). • Procedure to follow on the board: 1. Divide time evenly between group members. 2. Writer of each piece presents main concerns (which may have changed after seeing other papers). 3. Each reader gives the writer an honest response to her/his piece, making sure to articulate what s/he thinks the writer's main idea is ("mirroring"). 4. After writer's purpose or thesis is clear, move into open discussion of questions and suggestions for the writer. 5. Writer sums up suggestions and tells group her/his plan for next draft.

  16. 16. Publishing 102: Types of Publishing Online and in Professional Communities Anyone on the Internet can get to your online publication. The pressing question for authors is how many and what types of people do you WANT to read the publication? It's always important to keep in mind the intended audience for your work, as well as the audience you might get. The appearance of the page, as well as its content, makes a big difference in how attractive it is to the eyes of professionals versus the general public.
  17. 17. Publishing 102 Intellectual Property - There is a great deal of debate nowadays about whose ideas on the web belong to whom. Most problematic scenario would be people plagiarizing your online work and then later accusing you of plagiarizing them. There are techniques - such as water-marks and time-stamping a document - that can help verify the originality of your online publications.  From -
  18. 18. Publishing 102: Do's and Do Not’s • Make the page layout simple, nice to look at, and easy to read on a monitor. Spare people from eye strain: use a clear font size and color. • Use graphics to catch the reader's eye and to illustrate an idea or theme in the article. Avoid the clutter of too many graphics. • Don't use frames unless it *really* is the best way to help readers navigate through the site. • Try to respond to all e-mail, even if it is a kid in school who is treating you like an information-machine that will feed him data for his report. Even a one-liner can be enough as a polite, humane reply. • Remember that "making money" is not the only way a publication can be valuable to you. There's more to an author's life than royalties. • Register your publication with the major search engines. • Remember that the web is always in flux. Other sites move around or disappear. Try to keep up with fixing dead links. • Try NOT to move your own publication, unless absolutely necessary. Try not to change the urls of your pages. Avoid becoming part of that web flux. If you do, people will have a harder time finding your work. • Send e-mail to owners of other web sites who may be interested in your work. But avoid the notice that looks like an automated commercial that's being sent to everyone and their brothers. It's tacky. Take the time to write a personal message. • Use that spell-checker! • Help out visitors who land somewhere in the middle of the site. Let them know where they are and give them links to find their away around. • It's a pain in the neck, but test your pages on all the major browsers and platforms. A page may look wonderful on your machine, yet come across as a mess on someone else's. • To help people know that they're still in your space, keep a distinctive look throughout the publication. Clearly label links that lead people off the site. • Don't expect every single duck in your publication to be in its row. Nothing is perfect, except perhaps imperfection. • Remember that if your work is good, word will spread.
