As part of this subject, students are required to research a topic or concept from the stack and blog their research, to be formally presented in the weekly seminars. Students have the option of submitting a research report or digital artifact which mediates their analysis in a critical and detailed fashion using technologies and platforms including podcast, online video, annotated image gallery or Twitter feed for example.
One student is invited to take on the curation of the stack, which will be developed further and expanded significantly over the course of the subject as a digital artifact. The curator/s will be tasked with organising and adding to the stack, filling in links and adding topics and examples. The student will present on their research and method of organising and developing the stack during the session, which will be submitted as that students’s digital artifact, with a critical reflection of 500 words explaining and documenting their approach.
