2/13: Project Lightning Talks

BDHWG is great place to workshop ideas, troubleshoot and try out new things in a supportive space.  Let’s check in and hear what folks are working on this semester with 5 minute lightning talks.

  • If you are interested in giving a lightning talk, please fill out this Google form no later than Wednesday at 12.00 pm
  • Lightning talks should be informal presentations of works-in-progress. Don’t worry about how “finished” your project is–it’s still very helpful to see early-stage projects
  • For presenters! Getting projects in front of a group early can get you critical feedback, help you troubleshoot problems, find peers, and get technical help
  • For everyone! Lightning talks are great opportunity to see what’s going on in the broader DH community

Structure

  • Each presenter has 5 minutes to present their work. NOTICE: There will be a hard stop at the end of five minutes
    • Co-conveners will warn you when you are have used up half of your time and when you are running out of time
  • After each talk we will offer about 3 minutes for the group raise questions that will hopefully spark future conversations
  • Don’t worry if you don’t have a PowerPoint presentation–visuals are nice, but not necessary
  • Please remember to mention the tools that you use so we can share them with the group

We’ll see you at the D-Lab convening room (356 Barrows) at 12 PM.
