DH in the Classroom: Tools, Tips, and Tricks

Are you interested in using digital humanities resources in your classes, but unsure of where to start? This day-long workshop features an introduction to existing resources for you and your students. We will explore digitized text repositories, test online tools for text analysis, experiment with collaborative wikis, and review existing digital exhibit spaces. In the afternoon we’ll discuss ways of integrating digital publishing into existing course assignments, followed by an opportunity to test-run a Wordpress exhibit space.
