Final reminder: conferences are scheduled this week for my #DigHum and #WritDM classes. Sign up for a fifteen-minute slot through Thursday the 10th. I still have half of students in each course that have not yet signed up. Failure to do so will earn you a week’s worth of absences and count against your midterm report evaluation.
I can see where posting page proofs could be problematic, but your work should remain your work, even though we academics receive such handsome royalties. (!)
I'm with you: I have been blogging for years, often using blog posts for publication in journals and books. I believe this has only helped my bid for tenure (since I got it).
You're also right that we're in between paradigms: the print and the digital. Much of what the former stands for will not hold in the latter. In a recent article, I call for scholars to begin using social media for their scholarship — this might be the only way we can keep our disciplines alive and resonant. There are many reasons for doing so, but as you point out, many of us are victims of the process or not technically literate enough. See, for example, some of my posts here: https://medium.com/digital-humanities
Folks in my #WritDM and #DigHum courses: please sign up for your conferences for next week. Some of you need to sign up again. If you marked a slot longer than 15 minutes, then your request was rejected. Please do NOT wait to do this. If you miss your conference, you receive an absence for the whole week.
Students in my sections of Writing for Digital Media and Digital Humanities: I will be holding optional in-class meetings this week. I recommend your attending if you still have any questions or difficulties with the course and supporting technologies. By the end of this coming week, you should all be comfortable with the courses and have started turning in solid work. Meetings:
Students in #DigHum : remember that using Twitter is a requirement of your work each week. There were no Twitter posts for #DigHum1 , so be sure you are completing all parts of the lesson if you want full credit. I was lenient for the first lesson, but I will begin factoring Twitter into your weekly grades this week.
