- Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Kate Singer’s article examines the utility of the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) XML markup protocols as a method for analyzing and describing poetic texts, focusing on her experience teaching TEI encoding to an undergraduate senior seminar. Singer presents text encoding not merely as a means to producing an end result, such as a digital edition, but as “a dynamic, hands-on method for self-conscious, unhurried reading” that encourages debates about critical interpretation. Her essay discusses her pedagogical approach, specific assignments, and student papers written after completing the encoding unit. As Singer suggests, teaching methods like TEI encoding can serve two purposes: equipping students with practical, project-based skills and exposing the interpretive choices that are at the heart of textual editing and text encoding.
