On Friday, 25 February 2011, the RED team will be hosting a workshop designed specifically for teachers in Higher Education. The purpose will be to explore how RED can be used by students in a range of academic disciplines, as well as in attendees’ own research projects. For example, data in RED can form part of a study of the reception of literary texts; it can help us understand the role of printed material in shaping popular ideas and opinions; and it offers information about what people in the past read, how and in what circumstances they read, what impact their reading had on them, and how the experience of reading changed over time. The workshop will include a demonstration of RED, and hands-on activity sessions using primary materials to show how users can explore RED, and contribute evidence to it themselves. There will be opportunities to discuss how RED can help train students in the use of digital resources in the humanities. Further details are given in the draft programme below.

The event will be held at The Open University in London, 1–11 Hawley Crescent, Camden Town, London, NW1 8NP, Room 2. The workshop is free, but numbers are limited, and it is advisable to book early.
