From tweeting to multimodal research papers to Prezi, writing these days means more than just black text on a white background. Through workshops and discussions, THATCamp Digital Writing aims to deepen and advance our notions of all facets of composition. Participants in THATCamp Digital Writing will explore how to effectively compose using different digital tools and platforms. We begin with a special lecture on Friday afternoon, May 2, 2014, at John Jay College, and continue all day Saturday, May 3, 2014 at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus with workshops, discussions, and a Maker Challenge.
At THATCamp Digital Writing, join a dynamic cast of participants to
- Learn more about innovative ways to digitize your work and publish it online
- Share pedagogical methods that use digital media for writing and research assignments
- Explore how to evaluate online writing and give feedback
- Question how tools, technology, and methods for publishing work shape the way we write
- Take workshops on Scalar, Juxta, Omeka and collaborative writing
- Make connections with others
- Establish new collaborations.
TCDW is being organized by Amanda Licastro, a PhD candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center, and Elizabeth Cornell, PhD, IT Communications Specialist at Fordham University.
