A grab-bag of session ideas

September 29th, 2010

There are numerous topics that I’m interested in discussing at THATCampSF.  Here are a few:

  • Rapid digital tool-building experiments.  I can share insights from my work on CHNM’s One Week | One Tool team.
  • Using WordPress’ CMS features for building an online CV/portfolio.  Recently I used WP3.0 as a platform for Chapman University’s Faculty Promotion & Tenure ePortfolios, and can share my work on that project as well as suggest possibilities for future plugin/widget development that would streamline this process.
  • Strategies for building local DH communities, via sites like DHSoCal, and also through creating & hosting a California-based DH summer institute that’s loosely-modeled on the work done by University of Victoria’s DHSI.
  • The impact of social media on the terrain of humanities scholarship.  I can contribute my experience based on promoting and podcasting Yale’s “Past’s Digital Presence” conference.
  • Also, I would very much like to attend BootCamp sessions on: writing WordPress plugins and open-source tools for mapping projects.

    These ALL look great to me, but if I had to pick just a couple I might vote for: rapid digital tool-building experiments, the impact of social media on the terrain of humanities scholarship.

    I second that — all look great. But, I would be most intrigued with the professional goals: building a tenure/review e-portfolio. Since I just submitted my 6th year portfolio 2 weeks ago, I have been thinking alot about the narrative that I could have constructed with an online, hyperlinked representation. Cheryl Ball has a public e-portfolio that’s a great example; and then there’s Kathleen Fitzpatrick’s promotion e-portfolio. If we could standardize in some way, perhaps t&p committees wouldn’t be so nervous about it.

    The local consortium-building topic is one that I’m completely mired in now: on my campus, through Project Bamboo, in my department.

    Wow – so much to choose from! I’d be most interested in rapid digital tool-building experiments, open-source tools for mapping projects, and strategies for building local DH communities.

    These all look great! I’m especially interested in the topic regarding the usage of WordPress’ CMS features for building an online CV/portfolio and the potential impact of social media on humanities scholarship.
