                   Text Encoding Initiative Training:
                          Request For Proposals


Introduction

The Text Encoding Initiative invites proposals for the development and
delivery of training courses and materials to be recognized by the TEI. We
invite interested parties to contact us or submit proposals in writing that
will meet the training needs of the community. We are committed to working
with one or more parties to help develop the proposals so that they can be
certified by the Text Encoding Initiative.


Venues and Specific Opportunities

The TEI specifically invites proposals for the following venues in the
immediate future:

1. A short intensive training course to be offered in conjunction with
   the October, 2002 members meeting of the TEI. More information on
   this specific RFP is available at TEI October 2002 Opportunity.

2. A short intensive training course to be offered in conjunction with
   the ACH/ALLC joint conference in Athens, Georgia in the summer of
   2003. More information on this specific opportunity is available in
   the Appendix below ACH 2003 Opportunity.

In addition, the TEI solicits proposals for general, reusable training
materials; for repeatable training courses; and for courses or
workshops to be offered in conjunction with conferences.


What sorts of proposals will be considered?

Generally the types of proposals we are looking for are of the
following sorts.

1. Proposals for short intensive courses, typically 1-5 days,
   coordinated with a conference or other event. (See the specific
   events listed above for which we encourage proposals in the short
   term.)

2. Proposals for short courses or workshops of one to two weeks
   offered annually, to serve a specific audience or geographic
   region.

3. Proposals for self-study materials to be available online.

4. Proposals for distance education courses that could be offered
   repeatedly.

5. Proposals for text books or training manuals.

This list is not exhaustive. We welcome any imaginative proposals that
would help educate the community in appropriate ways.


What should be in the proposal?

While we invite interested parties to enter into a conversation with
us, the following are some of the features of a complete proposals
that need to be addressed before the TEI will endorse the proposal.

1. Audience. The proposal should make clear the audience targeted by
   the training. Is the training for novices, advanced users, users
   with specific needs? Is the training opportunity open to the
   community? How many participants can the course accommodate?

2. Timing and Location. How long will the training take and where will
   it take place? When will it take place? Will it be offered at
   regular intervals? Will it be offered at the same place repeatedly?
   Proposals should demonstrate that the location and time allocated
   are appropriate to the audience and content.

3. Content. How will the curriculum be developed? What exactly will be
   taught and in what order? How will the content meet the needs of
   the audience? What sorts of hands-on activities will enhance the
   content?

4. Financing. How will the development and delivery of the training be
   paid for? What will its cost to participants be? Will the targeted
   audience be able to afford the proposed training? What discount
   will TEI members get? (Please note that all proposals must include
   some provision for a TEI members' discount.) The TEI recognizes
   that quality training needs to be financed in a manner that will
   ensure its ongoing development and which will appropriately reward
   the sponsoring institution. The TEI is also willing to endorse and
   assist with fund-raising efforts in support of training courses,
   particularly those which might assist under-served populations (see
   below).

5. Outreach and Application Process. How will the training be
   advertised? How would people apply for the course and how would
   applicants be selected?

6. Evaluation. How will the training be evaluated and by whom? How
   will the evaluation process inform the ongoing development of the
   training? Is the proposing party interested in involving the TEI in
   the evaluation process?

7. Instructors. Who will do the training and what experience do they
   have? Proposals should include the trainers' credentials and
   relevant experience.

8. Facilities. What facilities are needed for the training? If
   specific facilities are envisioned, are they appropriate to the
   content and adequate for the audience sought?

9. Will the training cover some specific set of software tools? If so,
   please supply details.

10. Materials. What self-study, reference, or exercise materials will
    be given to participants? Will any software be provided?


Why submit a proposal to the TEI?

The TEI recognizes that quality training is regularly offered without the
endorsement of the TEI. This Request For Proposals is not meant to
discourage initiative--rather, we wish to encourage appropriate training by
recognizing excellence in training and assisting those who wish to develop
new opportunities. The following are some of the specific ways we can help
you through the RFP process.

1. Members of the TEI Training Committee and others can assist in the
   development of quality training by reviewing proposals, sharing of
   expertise, and by providing contacts with other interested parties.
   We can and will help you.

2. Proposals that have been accepted by the TEI as of appropriate
   quality will be listed on the TEI site as certified training
   opportunities. Such training opportunities will appear in a
   redesigned TEI training area in a way that clearly distinguishes
   certified proposals.

3. Accepted proposals can publicly describe their training
   opportunities, where appropriate, as "Certified by the Text
   Encoding Initiative" or "Developed in conjunction with the TEI."
   Use of the TEI logo will also be granted where appropriate.
   Alternative wording is also negotiable where appropriate and
   useful.

4. Appropriate proposals that are seeking funding can ask for a letter
   of support from the TEI or work with the TEI as a co-applicant.
   Please note that parties wishing to get support for funding
   proposals from the TEI need to give the TEI sufficient time to
   review the proposal and write letters of support.

5. The TEI will assist in promoting certified training through its
   membership.

6. The TEI can assist in the review of existing training in a
   confidential manner designed to help trainers upgrade their
   courses.


Where should proposals be sent?

Inquiries should be addressed to members of the TEI Training Committee (see
below.) Proposals should be sent by e-mail to the TEI Training Committee,
c/o Geoff Rockwell, at [log in to unmask] Proposals will be reviewed by
the TEI Training Committee: it will make recommendations to the Chair of
the TEI Consortium for a final determination, which will then be
communicated in a timely manner.
