Through his work on educational pedagogy, Bill Hart-Davidson has received a grant to do work on the Corpus & Repository of Writing. Crow is a project across institutions to create an online archive of student work as well as instructor research and artifacts. By making these materials accessible and searchable in one database, Crow seeks to support researchers and instructors looking to build on their methods of teaching writing.
WIDE Director Liza Potts (@LizaPotts, firstname.lastname@example.org) attended the autumn meeting of The Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes in New York to connect with experts and leaders in the community. This research is one step in the process of incorporating the values and culture that the Sherlock Holmes community has fostered into the revised Sherlockian.net site.
On September 15th Bill Hart-Davidson was invited to speak as a part of the Hutton Lecture Series at Purdue University. In his talk titled "Rhetoric (and Writing) in the Age of Robots," Bill discussed the importance of teaching robots the value of rhetoric featuring reference to his work on the Hedge-O-Matic.
