Workshops

TAPAS Workshops are run by the TAPAS team and focus on managing your TEI data and projects in TAPAS. These workshops are offered to members and non-members of TAPAS.

We offer two workshop formats:

  • 1-day workshops that help participants get started in TAPAS
  • 2-day workshops that offer an introduction to the TEI followed by a hands-on lab in TAPAS

TAPAS workshops are held either at Northeastern University or by request at other institutions.

If you're interested in hosting a workshop, or including a workshop plan in a grant proposal, please contact us. Pricing and scheduling will vary. Please be sure to provide as much information as possible in your Workshop inquiry to help us assess what kinds of services you or your community will need in a workshop setting.

Become a Partnering Instructor! Running a TEI workshop and want to use TAPAS? Become a partnering instructor with TAPAS. This is a free service of the TAPAS project, open to all members of the TAPAS and TEI community. We support outside community TEI workshops by offering a prebuilt community workshop project space. Here partnering instructors (see below) and their attendees can upload sample TEI, collaborate through a dedicated forum space, create custom collections, and test drive TAPAS features.

4 Steps for Getting Started!

Step 1: Sign up as a Partnering Instructor

We will help get you set up and include your event in the schedule..

Once you've registered as a participating instructor, you can request to join the Community Workshops Project and create your workshop's dedicated collection. This enables you to use TAPAS without having to set up a dedicated project of your own, but if you'd rather use your own TAPAS project that's also fine.

Step 2: Looking for guides and information on using the TAPAS project? Go to our "Getting Started with TAPAS" page.

Here you will find overviews on TAPAS accounts, features of our project site, and slideshows tutorials for getting started.

Step 3: Don't forget to register your workshop with the TEI-C here. This will provide your participants a free one-year membership to the TEI-C and give them access to project building features in TAPAS for the duration of their membership.

Step 4: Prior to your event, have your participants register for TAPAS Accounts and request membership to the Community Workshop project. If you would like help registering participants, or if you'd like help troubleshooting during the event, please contact us.
