    Subject: Shana Kimball started the topic Apply by June 30 for a Triple
    Canopy Commission at NYPL Labs in the forum NYCDH Announcements [NYC
    Digital Humanities]

    Shana Kimball started the topic Apply by June 30 for a Triple Canopy
    Commission at NYPL Labs in the forum NYCDH Announcements

    “For the sixth annual call for proposals, Triple Canopy is pleased to
    announce a partnership with New York Public Library Labs, which will
    support two commissions. Triple Canopy invites applicants to propose
    projects that engage a collection or body of materials, physical or
    digital, in the NYPL’s holdings. Applicants are asked to consider archival
    material both critically and imaginatively, in its capacity to evidence
    past events and practices as well as to form the basis for new creative
    work. Individuals pursuing research toward an MA or PhD thesis may not
    apply with a proposal that encompasses or includes their degree-related
    work. Research collections at the NYPL available for study can be viewed
    here.

    To apply:

    Triple Canopy is interested in forging connections between books,
    manuscripts, lectures, performances, exhibitions, among other forms, and
    the magazine’s digital publishing practice. The editors invite artists and
    writers to submit proposals for projects that may or may not find their
    primary realization on the Web; the following list, by no means exhaustive,
    enumerates some of the formats such projects might take:

    Print broadsheet, poster or pamphlet
    Book or e-book
    Digital project
    Software deployed outside of Triple Canopy’s website
    Public lecture or seminar
    Performance
    Reading
    Screening
    Exhibition or installation

    Triple Canopy is looking for artists and writers with coherent proposals
    for projects that can be realized in one year or less. Triple Canopy seeks
    work that makes innovative, persuasive use of its own form and medium.
    While past publication or experience is not a prerequisite, successful
    applicants will demonstrate fluency in the field in which they wish to
    publish. Triple Canopy prioritizes work by emerging artists and writers
    working in the fields of visual art and literature, broadly defined; the
    editors appreciate work that takes into account current discussions and
    debates but is not bound by them, work that is carefully crafted but not
    fixated on form. Additionally, Triple Canopy encourages applicants to
    familiarize themselves with the magazine’s online platform, which features
    a custom system for authoring and presenting digital projects. Read more
    about that platform here.

    Recipients of Triple Canopy Commissions at NYPL Labs receive:

    Eight to twelve months of artistic, editorial, and technical support;
    Six months of access to one of the research study rooms at the Stephen A.
    Schwarzman Building;
    Access to reference librarians for one-on-one consultations;
    An honorarium of $2,000;
    The opportunity to present work related to the commission as a public
    program hosted by the NYPL;
    Coordination and production of any print publication or live event that
    results from the recipient’s work;
    The opportunity for inclusion in Triple Canopy’s annual print anthology,
    Invalid Format;
    Archiving of materials and long-term maintenance of any online version of
    the project by Triple Canopy in partnership with New York University’s
    Fales Library and Special Collections.

    Apply via the online form by midnight June 30, 2015. Commission recipients
    will be announced September 1, 2015.”

    Fantastic, Shawn. I think we set this up so that in cases where members are part of multiple groups to which the same message has been posted, they will receive only one email notification.

    Just a note that a new bit of functionality on the Commons allows members to post to multiple groups at the same time. More info – http://news.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2015/05/21/introducing-commons-1-8/

    Hi Stephen,

    Yes, 1.8 has been released, and no, you don’t need special status to access
    the calendar functionality. If you’ve been logged in at your computer for a
    while, you may need to do a hard refresh to reload menus, etc. If that
    doesn’t work, please email the team at commons@gc.cuny.edu and we would be
    glad to troubleshoot. Thanks!

    I hope that groups begin exploring these new features. Calendars will be
    great for groups scheduling events, conferences, and workshops, and the
    ability to post to multiple groups at one time will help anyone hoping to
    get the word out about an event, opportunity, or initiative.

    Best,

    Matt

    Postdoctoral Fellow in Hybrid & Digital Pedagogy, Bucknell University

    Review of applications will begin 5/25/15

    https://jobs.bucknell.edu

    Bucknell University is awarding a postdoctoral fellowship to a scholar who
    is engaged with emerging trends in digital pedagogy and hybrid learning in
    his/her work. Area(s) of disciplinary specialization is/are open, but we
    seek candidates with research interests or experience working specifically
    in blended learning environments in undergraduate classrooms. Appointment
    will be for three years, effective on or after July 1, 2015.

    As a member of the professional staff of Instructional Technology (ITEC) at
    Bucknell, this fellow will collaborate with faculty and administrators to
    explore possibilities for hybrid-learning at our residential liberal arts
    university. Drawing on the recommendations of Bucknell’s recent
    presidential task force report on Integrating Open Education Resources and
    Residential Learning, the fellow will help Bucknell outline a strategy for
    how to incorporate digital and hybrid pedagogical practices that enhance
    student engagement and learning while maintaining the benefits of the
    residential liberal arts experience.

    Depending on the fellow’s particular experience and interests, his/her
    responsibilities may include:

    – consulting with faculty across disciplines and departments to deepen
    their understanding of the challenges and opportunities they face when
    integrating technology into their pedagogy and instructional practices.
    – collaborating with faculty to redesign courses to incorporate online
    modules and other learning materials, ensuring along the way that the
    University is following best practices in digital pedagogy.
    – partnering with faculty and colleagues in Library & ITEC to encourage
    the use of open educational resources.
    – collaborating with colleagues to provide specialized instruction,
    advice, and guidance in the application of technology to faculty, staff,
    and student work.
    – developing guidelines regarding how to best assess the impact that
    technology has on students’ engagement and learning.
    – planning, developing and facilitating ongoing campus initiatives such
    as: flipped classroom instructional strategies; new courses and new course
    designs; ePortfolio adoptions; the University’s learning management system
    (Moodle); active classroom design; and the integration of web technologies.
    – conducting an environmental scan of how other institutions have
    approached the implementation of hybrid and digital pedagogy practices.
    – leading workshops and class sessions on how, when and why to
    incorporate digital tools in the classroom.
    – actively participating in the hybrid and digital pedagogy profession
    at both the regional and national level, including the opportunity to
    travel for conferences, workshops, and site visits.
    – depending on departmental needs and the fellow’s interests, she or he
    may be invited to design, teach, and advise a university course.

    We seek a candidate who will embrace hard work, dedication, and laughter
    while working in a team-oriented group. In addition, he/she should be
    naturally curious, possess a willingness to embrace change, take
    intellectual risks, challenge assumptions, and relish tinkering with new
    technologies. The fellow is expected to contribute to Bucknell’s commitment
    to diversity and inclusiveness.

  • Just a reminder that this event will be taking place today from 4:15-6:15 at the GC. Hope you can join us!
