Last day discussion
Start with the question, the archive, or the tool?
Your goals (the reason you are doing the research),
Your conceptual framework (the literature you are working in, your field, your experience that you draw from),
Your research questions (a set of clear statements of exactly what you are studying)
Your methods (broadly conceived as the way you are going to answer the question, so for historians both the archives/sources you will work from and their perspectives are relevant as well as the way you will sample/explore them, and the actual techniques you will use to analyze and interpret them)
The validity concerns and threats (literally, answers to the question “how might you be wrong” where you work through inherent limitations and biases in your methods, sources, perspective, etc.)
How to get a project off the ground
- What were you most concerned about this semester?
- Where did you improve the most?
- How did you improve?
- What are you most comfortable with now?
- What are the limitations of your platform?
- How did you prioritize?
- What’s the minimum viable product?
- Where will it live long term?
Rough draft feedback
Please complete the feedback form for three of your classmates by the start of class on Thursday!
End of term feedback
I take your feedback on this course very seriously! The university will have general course evals open later this week, but your feedback on some questions more specific to this class will be very helpful for me. Your name, email, or IP address is not recorded with this form, and I will not look at responses until after grades are submitted.
I would also appreciate your time identifying your classmates who have been the most helpful for you this semester. This form does ask for your name, but I will not identify anyone’s responses to anyone else in class. I will use your responses on this form for bumping up grades of anyone others in class found particularly helpful, but no one will be penalized based on these responses.
A post with footnotes
This demonstrates a post with footnotes.
This is my footnote with a bibliographically correct short citation, to be followed below by a bibliography.
Wireframe feedback collab
For class today we’ll be collaborating to make a feedback form. One person in each group should open up the form to make edits.
