This two-day workshop will help design educators integrate basic web skills and concepts into their typography curriculum or related courses. On day 1, we’ll discuss principles of type on the web, focus on some HTML and CSS basics, and introduce web-based tools that can be used in the classroom. On day 2, we’ll put what we learned into practice. By the end of the workshop, participants will leave with several simple but effective projects to supplement and enhance typography coursework. While primarily geared towards educators, anyone wanting an introductory overview of using type on the web will benefit from this workshop. No experience with HTML or CSS is required.
