Assignments and more assignments
Part-time students on the MADH at NUIM are taking their final module for 2013/14. It’s a demanding MA and we’ve covered a lot.
It is probably the wrong approach but this evening I am switching between two assignments; a 2,000 word essay on metadata standards and a Dublin Core exercise where we are asked to create DC documents for a variety of resources. Most of our modules have synthesised a theoretical approach to Digital Humanities with practical, technical skills.
It is difficult to focus intently on one thing after a day at work so I’m trying to do a little bit for both assignments. But really, I’m not doing very much on either!
