Selected Digital Projects
Imagining Gender: Exploring Narratives of Technology
Designed and developed the digital collaborative space for a Fall 2013 hybrid course at Macaulay Honors College, CUNY that ran as part of the Distributed Open Collaborative Course (DOCC) organized by FemTechNet. Worked with the professor to plan assignments that fostered students’ digital literacy skills. Experimented with a variety of online environments—blog posts, a forum, and an interactive white board space—to facilitate student discussion. Brainstormed creative solutions in direct response to ongoing assessments of the effectiveness of the various online environments in our course. Created tutorials and ran workshops on using various digital tools, including Prezi, Soundcloud, TimelineJS, Slideshare, Mural.ly, image maps, and multiple WordPress plugins and customization features, to prepare students for their final project: a virtual companion to Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood.
Macaulay Instructional Technology Fellows at Baruch
Conceived of and created an online repository for tutorials, contact information, upcoming events, and other useful information for Macaulay Honors College students at Baruch College. The site simultaneously provides Instructional Technology Fellows at Baruch a collaborative space to share materials and tutorials, and is especially useful for new Fellows who face a steep learning curve during their first year in the program. The site continues to be used and updated by the current Fellows at Baruch.
Worked as a Project Assistant to organize and run multi-day conferences and summits; manage a $550,000 budget; oversee contracts and payments for freelance staff and vendors; process all invoices, reimbursements, and speaker honoraria; design and copy edit event materials, quarterly reports, the annual report, a weekly newsletter, and a digital media toolkit; and serve as a liaison to various groups within The Graduate Center community, including academic, administrative, and service departments.
