The CTI Centre for Textual Studies is part of a national initiative to
increase or enhance the use of computers in higher education. The Centre based
at Oxford University Computing Services covers such subjects as literature,
linguistics, classics, theology, philosophy & logic, theatre arts & drama.
The CTI Centre is holding an introductory seminar to enable lecturers in
higher education institutions to learn about our work. In the morning there
will be a series of talks and discussion sessions about various aspects
of the use of computers in higher education teaching: practical, pedagogic,
political, institutional, etc. In the afternoon we will demonstrate some of
the hardware, software, and courseware available for higher education teaching.
There will be opportunity for participants to try out some of the packages for
themselves. No previous knowlede of computing will be assumed and the open day
will be aimed at people unfamiliar with the CTI.
The day's programme includes:
* An Introduction to Computers in the Humanities
* Electronic Resources and Electronic Texts
* Teaching Tools for the Humanities
* Text Analysis
* Multimedia in Textual Studies
The cost of the open day will be #35.00 (pounds), #15.00 for staff and
postgraduates at Oxford University, which includes coffee, lunch,
and tea. Participants may be able to obtain funding from their staff
development office. Cheques should be made payable to Oxford University
Computer Services. If accommodation is required for the Thursday or Friday
evening, please contact us.
