Summer usually means the time to ‘catch up’ and finally get cracking on those little side projects that often get pushed to the side during the year. Join the BDHWG working group on our DH Summer Challenge. Be part of a support group who will set concrete academic, DH, and professional goals and motivate one another throughout the summer. Summer challenge is open to all, and our current group includes some DH friends from off-campus.
1. Set realistic, small, practical goals related to DH or general academia to be completed every two weeks. (Deadlines: July 1, July 15, July 29, August 12, August 19)
2. Post your goals to this google doc and check off your accomplishments throughout the summer.
3. Motivate one another through the chat function on google docs (right side) or write comments in the ‘smiley face emoticon’ columns. Communicate on twitter with #bdhwgsummer
4. If you need the extra motivation, check off on the google doc that you will submit a $10 monetary commitment stating that you will work on your goals (lest have the money go towards a group victory money pot).
