TEI and Humanities Pedagogy: Building TAPAS Classroom

The development of a platform for teaching the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), which would allow for shared instruction materials, collaborative teaching, student evaluation, all built within the NEH-funded TAPAS infrastructure.

Text markup with TEI is a key topic in the digital humanities classroom: it engages students in a close examination of text, discussion of interpretation, and inquiry into textual materiality. But the logistics can be challenging: tools for working with TEI/XML-encoded data require greater technical expertise than humanities faculty possess, and these tools are not designed with classroom needs in mind. TAPAS Classroom will offer instructors a centralized, user-friendly platform for organizing and sharing course materials, with features to support group analysis, display, and commenting on TEI assignments. The platform will enable both quick previewing of TEI files and sustained engagement and analysis. As part of the TAPAS framework, TAPAS Classroom will enable users to share assignments and supporting materials with the entire TEI community, and projects can also be migrated into TAPAS proper. TAPAS Classroom situates TEI pedagogy at the heart of the TEI research community.
