Upcoming Workshops: Getting to know TEI P5 and an Educational
Roundtable (31 October 2007)

The 20th Anniversary Text Encoding Initiative Consortium Members'
Meeting is offering two pre-conference workshops to interested
participants. Both workshops take place on October 31 in McKeldin Library.

I. Getting to know TEI P5 : Everything you wanted to know about TEI
P5 (but were afraid to ask)! [Instructors: Dot Porter and James Cummings]

This day long hands-on workshop will begin with a basic overview of
the TEI Guidelines: the structure of the TEI as a text encoding
system and the major changes from P4 to P5 in the way the TEI is
generated and organised. This full-day workshop runs from 9 a.m. to
5:30 p.m. with a mid-day break for lunch. Fee: $120.00

II. TEI training: "Education Roundtable" [Convenor: Werner Wegstein]

This half-day event offers a platform for instructors to exchange
ideas and concepts about teaching TEI to different groups of users
(from undergraduates to researchers), at different levels of detail,
using different media and environment (distance teaching vs. a
classroom approach), for different modes of scholarly discource
(dictionaries or scholarly editions), and using different methods
(e.g. Teaching TEI by translation). This half-day workshop will run
from 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The workshop is free, but registration is required.
