Social Paper

Project Team: Erin Glass

Description: Social Paper is a non-proprietary socialized writing environment developed by and for The CUNY Academic Commons. First envisioned by Graduate Center students as part of the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy program, Social Paper’s development has been made possible by a National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Start-Up Grant and a CUNY Advance Grant. Social Paper’s introduction at the GC is part of an ongoing student initiative that aims to create a durable student commons that transcends institutions.

For Graduate Students: What if you could browse through the writing of all Graduate Center students — in every discipline and at every stage — in order to better know your community, reach out to new peers, and discover role models and support for shaping your academic identity and activities? Read more here about how Social Paper can help create participatory and collaborative student writing communities, browse public papers and comment activity,  or simply start writing.

For CUNY Professors: Help build a collaborative, participatory student writing community at The CUNY Graduate Center by using Social Paper in your class. Start by reading why collaborative, networked writing is important for graduate and undergraduate education, learn how Social Paper is more student-centered than other platforms, and easily set up Social Paper for your class on The CUNY Academic Commons.

Social Paper’s development has been made possible by a National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Start-Up Grant and a CUNY Advance Grant.
