The ninth annual gathering for independent web creators of all kinds, graphic artists, designers, UX engineers, coders, hackers, to share ideas, create and improve their personal websites, and build upon each others creations.
I’m still working out a conflict to figure out if I’ll physically be in Portland in person, but at the very worst, I’ll definitely attend remotely. This is my favorite event of the entire year, so I definitely won’t miss it.
There are still some tickets left so RSVP now! I hope you’ll join me.
The Chronicle of Higher Education recently published an article entitled “The Fall, and Rise, of Reading” arguing, in part, that digital annotation can restore discipline to college students’ reading habits (annotate it with us at that Hypothesis-enabled link). While we agree, at Hypothesis we are less concerned with whether students have read — reading compliance — than in how they read, with how their reading and annotating practices inform other skills like critical thinking and writing.
Last fall, we shared a research project on the impact of Hypothesis annotation in teaching reading and writing. That group has since conducted their research, presented at the Conference on College Composition and Communication, and is in the process of writing up their findings and conclusions for publication. Since then we’ve learned about or been involved with several other research projects looking at the role of annotation in the teaching of composition and literature. Next Thursday, we will host a webinar bringing together scholars doing this research in conversation.
Join our free webinar, 12–1pm PT/3–4pm ET on Thursday 9 May 2019, focusing on current and future research about how annotation is being used in the English and composition disciplines, and what research shows — or could show — about the impact digital, collaborative annotation can have on student success.
Hosted by Hypothesis Director of Education Jeremy Dean, you will hear from multiple scholars about their research and outcomes:
- Alan Reid, Assistant Professor, English, Coastal Carolina University
- Julie Sievers, Director of Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship, Southwestern University
- Michelle Sprouse, English and Education PhD Candidate, University of Michigan
- Noel Brathwaite, Assistant Professor of English, SUNY Farmingdale
There will also be time for presenters and attendees to discuss questions and future research directions together.
I’m in for this… I was just talking to a composition teacher the other day and wondering exactly how one would use Hypothes.is in such a setting.
ABOUT THE TALK
For the past couple of decades, the tech companies of Silicon Valley (and beyond) have run unchecked, causing havoc, destroying civil discourse, democracy, ruining personal relationships, running marketplaces of harassment and abuse, all to line their pockets. The very worst part is that they did it with our labor.
This isn’t a talk, this is a union meeting.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Mike Monteiro is a designer and co-founder of Mule Design in San Francisco. He's been talking about design responsibility and ethics since before you were ready to listen. He’s written three books, including the just-released Ruined by Design.
A small number of books will be available for sale, which Mike will be able to sign after the talk. Otherwise, buy the book on Amazon. But really, just buy it and read it beforehand. It will help make the world better.
Follow him on Twitter, despite his feelings about Twitter: @monteiro
This was the event that touched off my idea to read Ruined by Design and start an IndieWeb Book club to discuss it.
