This archival site contains recordings and materials from three online meetings held in October, 2020 in which participants explored the joys and challenges of digital editing and encoding in the undergraduate classroom. The meetings were sponsored jointly by the SUNY Geneseo Center for Digital Learning and the New York Digital Humanities community.

The first meeting provided a theoretical framework for thinking about encoded scholarly editions. The second showcased a pedagogy-focused open educational resource on digital scholarly editing based on the recently digitized manuscript of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden. The third invited participants to engage in community discussion of their experience with editing and encoding in the undergraduate classroom.

The series, intended for anyone incorporating editing or encoding work in their teaching — or wondering if they should and could — was an opportunity for teaching faculty, librarians, technologists and others to learn, discuss, and share.

Everyone was welcome, at every level from novice to expert.

All three sessions were recorded. You can watch them on our Recordings page. You’ll find the materials used in the second (October 15) session on the Walden manuscript on the Materials page.
