I want to plug a couple of (relatively) recent happenings around my dissertation research. First, I was asked join a cohort of Pedagogical Development Consultants, who work with the Women Writers Project to pilot assignments that use TEI or XML (or that use WWP resources). As part of that partnership, I’ve written a blog post, “A New(ish) Approach to Markup in the Undergraduate Classroom.” It is a pretty succinct framing of the pedagogical approach and rationale for using XML in undergraduate writing courses, complete with pictures and links to one of my assignment prompts.
Second, I am making the anonymized XML data and schemas generated in my XML-based writing course available. You can check out the GitHub repo if you are interested in playing with the data, or you can view the student writing on this display site I built.
