Introduction to PressForward
September 23, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
By: The Teaching and Learning Center & GC Digital Initiatives @ The Graduate Center, CUNY
In this introductory workshop, new users will participate in a hands-on introduction to PressForward. The workshop will cover accessing PressForward from the WordPress Dashboard, adding feeds, selecting content to review, and organizing and publishing curated content. Attendees will also explore the editorial practice of group curation, and consider how PressForward might be integrated into a range of projects inside and outside the classroom at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
There are no prerequisites to enroll, though some familiarity with WordPress would be useful.
NOTE: These will be “hands on” workshops. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops. A limited number of laptops will be available to borrow on site.
Co-sponsored by the Library Association of CUNY, the Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center, the Graduate Center Digital Initiatives, and the Borough of Manhattan Community College’s Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship.
