If you can’t make it to the whole day, do stop by to see Danielle Spratt and Tonya Howe show us how to teach using TypeWright, from 2:30 to 4:00–

“Teaching students to create digital editions using TypeWright”
How can we use 18thConnect and TypeWright as a way of helping engage students more directly in understanding the literature, culture, and history of the eighteenth century? This session will be devoted to considering multiple effective models for using TypeWright in the classroom, ranging from designing a single DH-based assignment to a semester-long assignment that resulted in a digital edition. Throughout the discussion, we will focus on elements of effective project management models to offer tips and tools to help maximize the use of 18thConnect and TypeWright in addition to other resources (Scalar, Classroom Salon, etc.). The majority of the session will focus on offering hands-on time working with TypeWright to help participants think through and begin to create assignments tailored to serve the needs of faculty and their students.
