Teaching and Researching with Scalar

Teaching and Researching with Scalar (HASTAC Scholars Webinar), Apr 14, 2015. This workshop serves as an introduction to Scalar, a free, open-source authoring and publishing platform designed for scholars writing media-rich, long-form, born-digital scholarship. Developed by the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture at the University of Southern California, Scalar allows scholars to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose that media with their own writing in a variety of ways; to annotate video, audio, images, source code, and text using the platform's build-in media annotation tools; and to structure essay- and book-length works in ways that take advantage of the unique capabilities of digital writing, including nested, recursive, and non-linear formats. This workshop covers basic features of the platform, including a review of existing Scalar books and a hands-on introduction to paths, tags, annotations, and importing media, and then move on to more advanced topics including the effective use of visualizations, annotating with media, and a primer on customizing appearances in Scalar.


How Not to Teach Digital Humanities [48:35]. Published on Jan 28, 2015, by the Kelvin Smith Library 2014. Dr. Ryan Cordell, Assistant Professor of English, Northeastern University 11/7/2014.  Dr. Cordell's talk encourages teachers to move beyond DH qua DH and instead think strategically about digital pedagogy in relationship to particular classes, curricula, and institutions. His talk will focus on specific courses, assignments, and strategies that have worked well (and a few that haven't) in his own classes in three distinct institutional contexts.
