Process Reflection posts are ungraded. Complete 10 of the 12 blog posts on time to receive an “A.”
Give each reflection post a descriptive title, include your first name, and check the category “reflection.”
In digital humanities, process is as important as process. Because you are entering unknown territory and creating new media forms and genres, you are forging a new path. You may reach dead ends, have to back track, and may never reach your goal. Reflecting on that path as you go means that no matter where you end up, you will have learned from the process. The process of writing and reflecting also helps you retain what you learn, so that you can apply it to new situations and inquiries. Finally, your reflections serve as lessons to others who may want to retrace your footsteps or attempt a similar project. You will draw upon these reflections when you prepare your White Paper at the end of the semester.
Your process reflection blog posts may be informal and honest, but they should also be thoughtful and substantive. Reflect on what you read, discussed, learned, and/or created. Record important ideas or insights, or explore frustrations and how you overcame them.
Quality of reflection is more important than quantity. At a minimum, your weekly reflection should comprise a substantive paragraph, but more typically you will write a 2-3 paragraphs in order to record what you did and reflect on what you learned.
