I’m finalizing an article about the strategies and tactics I use as Project Coordinator for the Smithsonian Transcription Center. I’m specifically reflecting on measuring progress with the TC goal(s) and museum and archive goals. Of course, that immediately calls to mind this presentation I gave (remotely) as part of the MicroPasts September 2015 Workshop.
For Good Measure
Although I was not able to physically attend the workshop held at the UCL Institute of Archaeology on 23 September 2015, I was delighted to be included in the discussions remotely as we move toward more robust participatory and crowdsourcing programs. Sharing factors of success for each type of project and using these details to overcome the challenges we all face in designing, managing, and improving our projects will only serve to lift all ships.
If you’re interested in more context, you can also explore video from the 31 March 2015 MicroPasts Conference at the Royal Geographic Society; here’s the presentation I made about the Transcription Center during that event.
