Teaching with Bots

What can we learn about Walt Whitman’s poetry from @WhitmanFML? And what can a parody account teach us about voice, authenticity, or rhetoric in a digital context? This workshop will be a short, hands-on introduction to the world of bots and a demonstration of how to make them. Attendees need not have any prior coding or programming experience, but if all goes well, they'll leave 90 minutes later with a working Twitter bot of their own.
