Hands-On Workshops

The afternoon of the workshop will be devoted to a set of concurrent hands-on workshops, each led by one of the showcase presenters and focused on the type of digital approach central to their project. The workshops will provide an opportunity for participants to get a taste of what is involved in turning ideas into digital projects. The proposed workshops will not equip participants to create projects like those being showcased; they will use less powerful, free software accessible for those with no technical background. But we know from teaching digital history that actually working with a tool, rather than simply using and analyzing projects, helps immeasurably in understanding what is involved in digital scholarship.

Each workshop will be limited to 15 participants.
