The Proceedings of THATCampAmanda FrenchWe are currently putting together the Proceedings of THATCamp, and I could use some input and advice about what people want from it. We've made definite progress, so I can show that off as well.
6
Introducing new technologies to facultyMargaret DriscollStrategies to share across cultures (library, faculty, IT)
7
Introducing new technologies to public heritage professionalsColleen GreeneIdentifying common tech needs, objectives, and challenges. Utilizing interns. Facilitating better collaboration and resource-sharing.
8
How to get funded in the digital humanities Jane Lehr (Proposer without funding experience)I would like folks with successful grant experience for cultural studies, digital humanities & computer science collaborations to share their recommendations, best practices, and magic. I am particularly interested in how to fund (and manage) projects that include significant undergraduate contributions.
9
Creating an platform for online Tenure & Promotion Portfolios with WordPressJana RemyI'll present information about the WordPress-based ePortfolio platform that we've cobbled together for Chapman TT faculty. Would love to have attendees discuss pros & cons of what we've done and share with us any similar uses of technology at their campuses. We can also broaden the dicussion to include the challenges of using open-source software for university development projects.
10
Instructional Technology--how does it work at your institution? Jana RemyWould like to discuss IT support networks for teaching and research--what works and doesn't. Could possibly be combined with Margaret's proposal (#6)
11
Social, geospacial, mobile digital history appsColleen GreeneWhat are they, why should public heritage professionals and digital historians make use of these? Free vs. freemium? Content and tech needs.
12

16
Aid for Understanding File Format Conversion Mary Woods and Gloria GonzalezBrainstorming on the need for resource that explains the details of file migration, and what exactly happens when one format is transformed into another (specifically audio/visual files, and common born-digital files). How do files change on the bit level? What context is lost during migration and how is authenticity maintained (or not)? What would this resource look like? And what audiences would benefit from this information? We'd also like to explore and aggregate related resources.
17
ViewshareGloria GonzalezAnother viewshare workshop (for those who missed it today, no worries I wanted to go to Omeka too) or time to work on making views with your own datasets. Also, good news--I can now create Viewshare profiles on the spot!
18
Digital Ethnography & FieldworkWendy HsuThinking about how the mobilization of digital tools can enhance ethnographic processes (data collecting, informant interacting/gathering, data processing/managing) in teaching, research, and journalistic contexts.
19
Regional CollaborationScott KleinmanJacqueline Wernimont proposed this via Twitter.
20
Scholarly Annotation/iAnnotateSuzanne ScottI'm co-authoring an article about grading in iAnnotate on the iPad, specifically how color-coded stamps might function to help students' track their development in a freshman writing course. If others are thinking through how digital or media-rich annotations might be used to model close reading (e.g. the Heart of Darkness hypertext example from the dork shorts over lunch), streamline our research or grading workflows, or bolster student learning objectives (more efficient or effective commenting structures), I'd love to discuss it. This doesn't need to be limited to iAnnotate, but I will also happily demo it for interested or unfamiliar campers.
