Discussion of "A Medievalist in Action"

The Workflow of Communicating a Workflow

Until this exercise, I was almost entirely unconscious of my "workflow," even to the point of skepticism when I read over the assignment. I did not think I went about my research in a systematic way, and I certainly did not have readily available reasons for relying on the computer and web programs I use as a graduate student. Documenting my process helped me realize that some of my methods were extremely effective, such as my integration of the Zotero add-on for Firefox into my browsing habits, and some were not—experimenting with Scrivener, a program that comes with built-in versioning, quickly made me switch from other word processing programs.

Ironically, the workflow behind the creation of this exercise (I used QuickTime for screencasting and iMovie for editing) led me to incorporate yet another set of processes into my Scalar workflow for this course: video production. This screencasting assignment was my first time editing a video, and I quickly became reliant on iMovie to create screencasts and related evidence for many of my other Scalar assignments.
