Welcome back fellow Commoners!
Another semester and it’s another buzz of activity on the Commons. Since it’s the beginning of a new academic year, I thought a kind of orientation to some of the digital initiatives going on around the Commons is called for.
GC Digital Initiatives – A great site to check often, it brings together many of the programs and groups from around all corners of the Commons. Read about workshops, events, resources, DH Institutes, etc. They also have a Twitter handle: @cunygcd
GC Digital Fellows – Based in the GC Digital Scholarship Lab, these grad students work in–as they describe it–an “in-house think-and-do tank for digital projects, connecting Fellows to digital initiatives throughout The Graduate Center.” They also have a Twitter handle: @digital_fellows
Social Mediums – The Program Social Media Fellows work to promote the scholarship and academic projects of students in each program and help students develop the critical tool sets to manage their digital footprint. Their website, “Social Mediums” includes commentary on recent Social Media news stories as well as tutorials for using various social media platforms (including The Commons). As you’d expect, they have a Twitter handle:
Hope to see you around the Commons. Until next week,
