Workshop Description

As an archivist, do you feel unprepared to teach? Have you heard about active learning but don't know how to move beyond the traditional show-and-tell? In this introductory course, you'll be introduced to pedagogical theory and practices, discover teaching resources within and outside of the archives community, practice designing active learning experiences, and start planning for how to connect all the dots back home.

Upon completing this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize applications of active learning strategies in archives-based instruction
  • Write measurable learning outcomes
  • Distinguish broader objectives from specific outcomes
  • Employ backward design to create an active learning exercise around a primary source
  • Develop strategies for matching collections and learning objectives
  • Recognize, locate, apply, and adapt trusted TPS resources

Who should attend? Practicing librarians, archivists, and museum professionals who are (or will be, or would like to be) directly responsible for teaching with collections, and managers and administrators responsible for (or interested in developing) instruction programs

What You Should Already Know: A basic understanding of archives and/or libraries

Attendance limited to 35.
