Over the past couple of weeks, we Praxers have been wire-framing two distinct visions of the Ivanhoe game in two groups – Eliza, Scott, and Stephanie in one, Francesca, Zach, and I in the other. On Wednesday we presented our visions to each other and our dedicated Scholars’ Lab mentors. (Francesca has written an excellent…. More.
Last Monday, at the suggestion of our Scholars’ Lab mentors, the Praxis cohort divided into two teams to start wire-framing some of our ideas for the Ivanhoe Game. The initial thought was to divide into groups along a theoretical Type I/Type II DH divide, as identified by Stephen Ramsay. Many of us Praxers, however, are…. More.
Last week Francesca posted on Bruce Tuckman’s model of group work on a collaborative project. To recap, a group passes through four phases: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning. I find this an intriguing model, and I agree with Francesca that we are currently in a sort of “Forming” stage, but I also find myself…. More.
This post is a couple weeks late, but I would still like to share a few thoughts on the process of drawing up our 2013-14 Praxis charter. Though we had the eloquent and insightful charters of the previous two cohorts as models, the Scholars’ Lab faculty encouraged us to think about what our goals, principles,…. More.
I have saved the discussion of my biggest struggle with Project Management for my final post in this miniseries. Much to my surprise, communication with the rest of the team was one of the more difficult aspects of this semester. This caught me completely off guard because I actually think that I have pretty good…. More.
In my last post, I talked through some of my experiences with the organizational aspects of project management. Here, I want to talk about one of the aspects of project management which can be more difficult to articulate and to learn. While each project needs a timeline, deadlines, and clear goals, a project manager does…. More.
At our final official Praxis meeting, I shared an overview of my experience as project manager with the rest of the team, and I thought I would share some of those same reflections in a short series of blog posts. This first post reflects on some of the more technical and organizational aspects of project…. More.
After many months of brainstorming, debating, dreaming big, getting down to business, panicking, refocusing, programming, and fine tuning, Prism is here! It has been a great journey, and I think my fellow Praxers would agree when I say that we have learned a lot. Not only have we been introduced to the world of DH…. More.
This week Cecilia and took a few hours and completed one of our goals for this semester: creating a tutorial video for using Prism. Not only did this turn out to be surprisingly fun (due mostly to Cecilia’s amazing antics), but it also added a few more skills to the list of things we have…. More.
