It’s that time of year again – time for the CERES Call for Proposals! This year we’re looking for faculty to submit project proposals for classroom use of the CERES Exhibit Toolkit [3] in Fall 2018 or Spring 2019. The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2018.

The CERES Exhibit Toolkit is a WordPress [4] plugin and theme developed by DSG staff. CERES is used to create websites that dynamically integrate images, text, video, and other digital materials into complex scholarly narratives and exhibits, while keeping those base digital materials preserved in a long-lasting archive. Visit our projects page [5] for a full list of sites and exhibits that have been built using CERES.

Classroom use of CERES might take many forms, including:

To support classroom use of CERES, DSG offers training for faculty and teaching assistants in using CERES, and can visit the class and provide instruction or lead discussion about the exhibit-building process and tools. We have an extensive set of supporting materials including step-by-step instructions, how-to guides, and sample assignments. We are also happy to work with faculty on planning out syllabi and lesson plans that make imaginative use of these digital tools, at whatever scale works best for the learning objectives of the course.

We are happy to meet with anyone interested in submitting a proposal to talk about possibilities. For more information, please contact us at dsg@neu.edu [6].

Apply here [1]. We look forward to working with you!
