For Next Tuesday, your first practicum is simply to get your feet wet. Join Hastac.org and write your first blog post. Find directions for this here.
HASTAC is a community of over 14,000 individuals and institutions dedicated to advancing digital scholarship and learning. Our blog posts will respond to the texts, projects, or videos assigned to prepare for each class, due by midnight the night before class. Each blog post will have an optional prompt to help you get started writing. Posts should be at least 300 words long, include at least one link, and include one embedded image, video, or sound byte.
Your optional prompt is: What is hastac? Why might it be a useful community forum within which to frame our online discussions? In your early explorations of the site, what blog posts or content strike you as particularly interesting and why?
For technical help with blog posts, see Hastac’s knowledge base. If you can’t find the answer to your question there, I may be able to help you.
