The following is a list of resources available locally at The Graduate Center and elsewhere. It is not exhaustive, and serves as a helpful guide for getting started. The list can continue to grow and change over the semester. If you have suggestions of resources that you think should be included here, email Lisa.
The GC Digital Fellows, the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate Program, the Mina Rees Library, the Teaching and Learning Center, and the Futures Initiative all run workshops throughout the semester. Many of them are on topics related to digital tools that could be useful to you as you begin to formulate your proposals and projects. Check their websites periodically and register to participate.
Open Office Hours
The GC Digital Fellows provide Office Hours, dates and times TBD. Appointments are not required; however, knowing in advance what the question is that you would like to ask is always helpful. Office hours are not designed as “service hours.” Instead, GC Digital Fellows will help you think through and solve your problem with you, help to develop your project proposal, and brainstorm with you on your project design.
The first open office hour is on Thursday, August 29th from 3:30 – 5:30 PM in room 7414 of The Graduate Center. The second office hour is on Wednesday, February 6th from 5 – 7 PM. The days and times will continue to alternate in that pattern throughout the semester. Be sure to check the calendar for the most up to date information about office hours. Email gc [dot] digitalfellows [at] gmail.com with questions.
CUNY Academic Commons
– We’re using this open source, CUNY-based platform for hosting the course website
and the class group
(which includes the forum). You will want to set your settings for the group to “all email” which will allow you to receive emails when someone posts a discussion item to the forum. We will be using this feature in lieu of a class listserv. While the website is a public-facing display of course content, syllabi, calendars, and blog posts, the group is designed for private sharing among the class. Public facing blog posts and writing assignments should be posted to the website. Internal discussion should be posted to the group forum.
– If you have not already created a Zotero account, we strongly recommend that you do so. It is a citation management tool which will help you considerably with any bibliographic research and writing that you may do.
More resources will be posted over the course of the semester.
