The TEI @ Oxford Summer School is a week-long course introducing the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) for encoding of digital text. It combines in-depth coverage of the latest version of the TEI Recommendations for the encoding of digital text with practical implementation. It includes an introduction to mark-up, explanations of the TEI Guidelines, and approaches to publishing TEI texts. Numerous practical exercises expose you hands-on experience of a wide range of TEI customisation, editing, and publication.
Each day will include a guest talk during which real-life projects using TEI will be demonstrated and explained.
If you are a project manager, research assistant, or encoder working on any kind of project concerned with the creation or management of digital text, this course is for you.
The course runs from Monday 20 July - Friday 24 July, 2009. It runs from 10:00 - 18:00 each day. The start time is set to benefit those commuting, or those who want to look around Oxford in the early morning.
