    Subject: [DHSI] call for pedagogical partners for Women Writers in Review

    Dear all,

    The Women Writers Project is seeking collaborators for our pedagogical
    consultant program, developing teaching materials for our newest
    collection, Women Writers in Review (WWiR). WWiR (http://wwp.neu.edu/review/)
    is an open-access collection of around 600 reviews, publication notices,
    and other documents that respond or relate to texts by the authors in Women
    Writers Online. We’re now inviting expressions of interest for pedagogical
    development consultants, who would work with us to create assignments that
    use WWiR, to be published on the WWP’s sites. Collaborators would have our
    support in creating assignments and activities and would also be named as
    pedagogical development consultants for the WWP. For more details on this
    program and to read some assignments from our first cohort of teaching
    partners, please see:
    http://wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/teaching/pedagogical-dev.html

    For a detailed and thoughtful discussion of one WWiR-based assignment
    sequence, written by Professor Jason Payton of Sam Houston State
    University, please see:
    http://wwp.neu.edu/wwo/teaching/reports/payton_wwir-tagging.html

    We are also inviting responses from those who would like to develop—or who
    already have!—assignments and activities involving Women Writers Online (
    http://wwp.neu.edu/wwo) for publication on our site. If you don’t have
    institutional access to WWO and would like to set up a trial (for either
    yourself or your institution), please contact us. More details on WWO
    licensing and trials are here: http://wwp.neu.edu/wwo/license/

    If you’re interested in getting involved with this program, please email
    wwp@neu.edu with a brief expression of interest—just a short paragraph on
    the teaching you’ll be doing in fall 2017 or spring 2018 and some initial
    thoughts on how you’d like to use the WWiR or WWO collections. The deadline
    for submissions will be October 15, 2017.

    If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    All my best,

    Sarah
