As you know, the theme of the upcoming TEI2017 conference in Victoria is “Pedagogy and Praxis.” The Local Organizing Committee has secured some time
on Wednesday morning (following the
“TAPAS Classroom” paper) for a roundtable on reviving the Pedagogy SIG. The goal of the roundtable and subsequent discussion will be to identify the most important objectives a newly revitalized Pedagogy SIG might achieve over the next two years, provided
there is sufficient interest.
In order to hear from the broadest range of voices and disciplines, I’m asking everyone giving papers in the “Pedagogy and Praxis” stream of the conference
to answer the questions below. I’d also like to hear from TEI-L members who are not able to attend the conference. Please send written answers to me (Local Organizing Committee member Janelle Jenstad at
[hidden email]) by Thursday, Nov. 9th. I will aggregate them and then offer a summary in the session so that your voices can be heard as well.
Describe the context in which you teach (or would like to teach) TEI. (Formal course on TEI or unit on TEI within another course? Age and experience of students? For credit
course? Which discipline?)
What are the principal challenges and benefits of teaching TEI in the context you've described?
