RSVPed Attending WordPress Custom Post Types and Taxonomies with Marco Berrocal

June 20, 2020 at 11:00AM- June 20, 2020 at 01:00PM

There are times when a WordPress installation may come up short in relation to what is required by your client. You need content of another type that isn’t a page or a post, and you need to label it differently. Enter Custom Post Types and Taxonomies.

During this Meetup, Marco will discuss what they are, show you how to create them, what his recommendations are when it comes to creating them, and how you can see WordPress as more than just a blogging or a simple site platform.

BIO: Marco Berrocal, Partner Relations at GreenGeeks
Marco is a talented WordPress developer who has worked for more than a decade making custom themes and plugins. He absolutely loves working with WordPress and with his local community (Costa Rica) as a WordCamp Organizer. When he is not in WordPress mode, he's all about my kids, travel, and food.

As always, we'll get the latest news and information going on in WordPress and answer your questions in a mini-version of a Happiness Bar.

RSVPed Attending Future Trends Forum: Academia, race, and the pandemic

A conversation with a leading scholar and activist

Thursday, May 21, 11 am - 12 pm (PDT)

How does the pandemic impact a society structured by racial inequalities? What does this mean for higher education, and how can we respond?

We will investigate these questions with Jessie Daniels, an activist and scholar of racism and the digital world.  Daniels is faculty associate at the Harvard Berkman Klein Center and professor at Hunter College (Sociology) and The Graduate Center, CUNY (Sociology, Critical Social Psychology, Africana Studies).

The Future Trends Forum is a weekly discussion event created and hosted by Bryan Alexander.  Since 2016 we have addressed the most powerful forces of change in academia. Each week, this video chat brings together practitioners in the field to share their most recent work and experience in education and technology. The intent of the Forum: to advance the discussion around the pressing issues at the crossroads of education and technology.

Bryan is also the founder of the Future of Education Observatory, which includes the Forum, the Future Trends in Technology and Education report, a blog, and a bookclub.

RSVPed Attending Academia, race, and the pandemic

We're going to explore how racism and white supremacy shape social and academic responses to COVID-19.  On Thursday, May 21st, from 2-3 pm EST, we'll be joined by Jessie Daniels, an activist and scholar of racism and the digital world.  Daniels is faculty associate at the Harvard Berkman Klein Center and professor at Hunter College (Sociology) and The Graduate Center, CUNY (Sociology, Critical Social Psychology, Africana Studies).

Daniels is an internationally recognized expert in Internet expressions of racism, and the author or editor of five books, two of which are about racism on either side of the digital revolution: White Lies (Routledge, 1997) and Cyber Racism (Rowman & Littlefield, 2009). She is currently at work on Tweet Storm:The Rise of the Far Right, the Mainstreaming of White Supremacy, and How Tech and Media Helped. In 2016, she co-edited (with Karen Gregory and Tressie McMillan Cottom) Digital Sociologies, which has been adopted by courses at several universities around the world.

Daniels’ attention is increasingly focused on how digital media technologies are changing higher education. She has co-authored two books on this topic, Being a Scholar in the Digital Era  and Going Public , along with a number of articles. In 2020, Daniels launched Public Scholar Academy to help faculty who aspire to be public scholars achieve their goals and to help university administrators who want to assess and respond to attacks from the far right against their institutions. 
I plan on asking Dr. Daniels about how racism shapes the unfolding pandemic. How does that impact colleges and universities?  What can we do to create a more just academy?
