Thanks for participating in Digital Scholarship in a Time of Precarity. Salina Lopez and I are looking forward to meeting you all and engaging in the upcoming work with you.
Our first synchronous "Meet & Greet" session will be at 11:00am PDT (UTC -7) on Sunday, July 26. (Zoom link was sent in our first intro message and is in our Discourse forum.)
Asynchronous guidelines and support will appear here each day, and we'll cross post in Discourse and (if the class wants it) via email.
If at any time you have questions or concerns about the week's activities or anything to do with DPL, please let us know. You may use the Discourse discussion forum or feel free to email us or DM on Twitter. If you need help beyond what we can provide, you may also contact Sean.

While Salina and I are "Pedagogy first, then technology" in our overall philosophies, we want to give you a heads up on several sites and spaces we hope you will explore and contribute to during the upcoming week, in addition to the DPL Auditorium and our course space. We suggest you set up free accounts in the following if you don't already have them:
Hypothesis (Collaborative/social annotation)
Padlet (Virtual bulletin board)
Jamboard (Google bulletin board) (software only—connect with any Google account)
Twitter (social media/microblogging platform)
Most of our course activity will be asynchronous, with activities posted daily. But we will offer short synchronous sessions on Zoom at least once a day for building community, comparing notes, and housekeeping. We'll post the (intended) days/times in Discourse. And we'll be happy to negotiate during the week to accommodate the various time zones of participants.
