Using Online Tools to Build Undergraduate Research Skills [Munch & Mull]

Mon, 2018-01-29 17:00
West Campus

How can online tools improve students’ research skills? Adela Deanova, Duke doctoral candidate in Philosophy, took on that question. As a 2016-2017 Bass Instructional Fellow apprenticing with the Center for Instructional Technology (CIT), she focused on how to build archival research skills while innovating a traditional course. (Read more about Adela and the Bass OA project here: https://cit.duke.edu/blog/2016/12/innovative-teaching-undergraduate-philosophy-bass-online-apprentice-project/).

Adela used the course management tool Sakai (https://sakai.duke.edu/) and the new portfolio tool Pebble Pad (https://portfolio.duke.edu/) to create modular archival research activities for students in Professor Andrew Janiak's Gender and Philosophy course. Creating these smaller, scaffolded tasks and then providing students with a means to digitally publish their work (and instructors an easy way to evaluate that work) offers a novel approach for building students literacy in research methods and digital publishing. 

Join us for a brown-bag conversation with Adela about this approach to building undergraduate students’ research skills. Light refreshments will be served. This talk, co-sponsored by CIT, is part of the Munch & Mull Digital Scholarship series.

Re: Publishing Series: Publishing As Conversation

Fri, 2017-12-01 17:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Scholarly publishing is often treated as one-way communication: send some knowledge out into the world, and then hope others learn from it, and maybe cite it somewhere down the road. Yet the greater and ultimate goal of publishing is to encourage others to actively engage with and challenge scholarly ideas in order to make our collective knowledge stronger. Ideally, publishing is a way of conversing with those most engaged in the topics we study, so we can gain new perspectives and approaches… while avoiding trolls, hecklers, and defeatists.

What methods are Duke authors using to converse with the audiences for their scholarship? How do they discover and connect with these valuable interlocutors, especially those who are most receptive to or affected by our scholarship? This event will feature a moderated discussion among members of the Duke community about these questions and more, as the first in a series of events that explore what it means to approach scholarly publishing as a conversation and how to find, seed, and engage in broader discussion of your scholarly work.

 Panelists:

  •  Sonja Foust (Office of News & Communication)
  •  Misha Angrist (Science & Society)
  •  Martha Adams (Department of Medicine)
  •  Jonathan Mattingly (Department of Mathematics)
  •  Danielle Purifoy (Nicholas School of the Environment)
  •  Yuridia Ramírez (Department of History)

Please RSVP for lunch at this event.

This event is co-sponsored by Duke University Libraries, Center for Instructional Technology (CIT), Digital Humanities Initiative, Digital Scholarship Services  (Duke University Libraries), Forum for Scholars and Publics, John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute, Office of Copyright & Scholarly Communication (Duke University Libraries), Office of Interdisciplinary Studies, PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge, Wired! Lab for Digital Art History and Visual Culture .

How To Make It Last [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-11-30 15:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

In surveying a few long-lasting digital publishing projects, we'll learn what characteristics have made them credible, sustainable, and fundable.  What decisions shaped the projects and helped ensure their longevity?  What kinds of institutional and grant support have fostered their continued growth?  What technological factors have been important in their durability?  Possible projects include the Brown Women Writer's Project, William Blake Archive, Rossetti Archive, Walt Whitman Archive, and the Index Thomisticus.

Respecting Indigenous Culture and Rights in the Digital Commons [Munch & Mull Digital Scholarship discussion group]

Mon, 2017-11-20 17:00
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

Libraries and other cultural heritage institutions have been early and enthusiastic adopters of technologies that make collections more broadly accessible and discoverable. Such practice is generally viewed as positive, for the ways that it can increase awareness and study of different cultural and historical experiences. Within that context, Kimberly Christen’s 2015 article on the unique intellectual property and cultural concerns of indigenous cultural artifacts is both startling and insightful, for highlighting how such collections reflect past destruction of indigenous groups and for introducing alternative ways of handling and digitally presenting indigenous objects.

 

Christen, Kimberly (2015) "Tribal Archives, Traditional Knowledge, and Local Contexts: Why the “s” Matters," Journal of Western Archives: Vol. 6: Iss. 1, Article 3.
Available at: http://digitalcommons.usu.edu/westernarchives/vol6/iss1/3

 

Some of the concerns Christen raises and addresses in this article are

  • Digitization processes for culturally significant objects,
  • Indigenous intellectual property rights,
  • Indigenous community access to these materials, and
  • Respect for and response to community concerns about what objects are made digitally and publically available.

 

ITS staff member and repository developer Jack Hill, who attended the Design for Diversity Opening Forum at Northeastern University in October, will lead discussion of this reading -- one of many included in the foundational readings for that forum and that we’ll be discussing in Munch & Mull over the next few months. The IMLS-funded Design for Diversity grant seeks to develop a toolkit for developing and implementing more inclusive library systems and practices.

Problems in Digital Publishing: Metadata, Discovery, Linked Open Data [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-11-16 15:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

This workshop will help participants understand how to make digital resources easier to discover, reuse, and query.  Beginning with an overview of [linked] open data (semantic web, RDF), we'll study examples of how digital publishing/scholarship projects have made their data open for creative remixing and open research.
