Event description

Description

Digital tools have introduced new modes for telling research stories, enabling people to work outside of the more traditional structure of the essay, connecting text with timelines, maps, videos, and other visual material.

This workshop provides participants a space for exploring digital writing tools for creating collaborative, non-linear, and multimodal scholarship. We will explore multiple tools for generating maps, timelines, and image collections and introduce Scalar, a free authoring and publishing platform that allows users to bring together their writing and imported media. We will look at examples of digital narratives and experiment with the functionalities of various tools through hands-on play.

Please bring along your ideas, your creativity, and a laptop!

Facilitated by Kiana Jones, Kate Joranson, and Nora Mattern of the University Library System.

This workshop is free and open to all members of the University of Pittsburgh community: students, faculty, and staff.
