THATCamp Midwest @ Purdue University Fort Wayne will take place from 9:00am until 4:00pm, followed by optional discussion time. Note: THATCamp Midwest @ Purdue Fort Wayne will function a bit differently than the usual THATCamp as there will be more focus on learning about digital humanities and scholarship, which means we will have more structure and pre-scheduled sessions.

The day will include brief presentations, panel discussions, and workshops covering topics including: metadata tagging, social networking and data visualization, digital collections, digital project management, animation, augmented reality, and incorporating digital projects in classes/programs.
