We thank you for your interest in the the ARCHE Archives Council. The Council is working hard to develop their Education and Grant Committees to enhance collaboration among member institutions at the consortia level. The Education Committee has planned a special workshop for their next meeting at the University of West Georgia in September.
This workshop will provide an overview of best practices for teaching primary source literacy to college & university students (teaching them how to identify, interpret, evaluate, use, and access primary sources and follow ethical principles during the course of their research) and discusses current guidelines & standards. Exercises and break-out or group discussions will enhance attendee’s understanding. Teaching exercises will be shared. The workshop will also address managing the teaching process, including working with professors, building a teaching program, managing time & expectations, and more.
