Your questions and perspectives contributed both to a discussion that touched on many important points about multimodality, culture, communications, and analysis of related data and to a lively work session of mode identification and mapping.
Based on feedback from attendees, there will be a follow-up workshop on creating multimodal transcripts of your data. More information will follow, and let MASCLab know if you have any ideas or suggestions.
Let’s continue the conversation as we build a community of practice around multimodal analysis at TC (and beyond). Please leave questions and comments below.
Following are links to resources I mentioned during the workshop, plus a couple more I thought could also be useful:
