Another special session at this year's institute is coming up on Tuesday afternoon. We're very lucky to have David Woods, from the Wisconsin Center for Educational Research, joining us to demonstrate a wonderful program that has great potential for writing center researchers and tutor educators. He'll introduce us to Transana, software for analyzing digital video and audio data. Widely used by educational researchers around the world, Transana is inexpensive and open source.
It's relatively easy to collect audio and video from writing center sessions, but much harder to figure out what those data mean. David will demonstrate how this powerful program can help us organize and analyze audio and video data in ways that are invaluable for both writing center research *and* tutor education. For more information, see the Transana website.
More later . . .
