    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: These brief assignments ask students to keep and maintain a weekly “identity log,” or “iLog,” recording, detailing, and thinking about their own identities and identifications. These “iLogs” will function as a kind of identity workbook, an analytical and metacognitive journal, connecting students’ observations and experiences to the texts, theories, and ideas of an Introduction to LGBT Studies class. Prompts include thinking about identities, sexuality, queer space, and popular culture, which are shared with the class via the class’s Tumblr Web site. The overall course syllabus and reading list are included as well. Though the “iLogs” are not formally graded (except on timeliness and completion), they generate a portfolio, an archive of ideas, objects, and occasions for discussion, study, and reflection. Once these are collected together, students can see the breadth and depth of intellectual, critical, and even affective work they and their classmates have done over the course of a term. See, for example, “iLog 4: Queer Bodies.”
