Proposing a Session: Why and How-To

Proposing sessions before THATCamp Performing Arts starts is one of the most important things you can do as a participant as it sets the table for the topics we will be discussing and gives us material to create the schedule with. For more information about how and why THATCamp proposals work go here.

While some of you may know how to go about making a proposal, we realize that some might not be familiar with WordPress Multi-Site. So, I figured would make a quick how-to to get you rolling.  Here are the steps:

1. Go to the login page for the WordPress dashboard for THATCamp Performing Arts here (this is a link to open the address http://performingarts2013.thatcamp.org/wp-admin/ on a new page/tab). It should look like this:

2. Enter the username and password to the site that you received when you were made a user of the site. (Email me if you did not receive this info or have any problems with this)

3. Once you enter that information and login you should see the dashboard, which looks like this.

4. On the top left of the dashboard menu select Posts.

5. Now click Add New

6. You should now have a place to create a title for your post and add content. Enjoy!

About Kimon Keramidas

As Assistant Professor and Director of the Digital Media Lab at the Bard Graduate Center, I am in charge of implementing digital media across the curriculum of my institution and in research projects and exhibitions. My research focuses on the study of media through the lenses of political economy and sociology of culture and the integration of interactive technology into pedagogy. I have taught courses in interface design, media and materiality, artifacts in the age of new media, digital information fluency, theatre design, and performance, and am curating an exhibition on interface design that will open at the BGC in spring of 2015. I am also Director of Digital Initiatives at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, co-founder and member of the editorial collective of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy, and co-founder and member of the steering committee of NYCDH. When not teaching and working I play games on both fields (soccer) and screens (Xbox, etc.) and consume sundry televisual culture. Oh yeah, and I'm a mean baker.
