Workshop: Building a Community of Digital Curation Educators

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop will be a series of facilitated participatory discussions and activities that will identify answers and then develop community goals that address 3 questions:

  • What should digital curation instructors be teaching? (We will share feedback between instructors and practitioners.)
  • Who are our digital curation educators, both formal in institutional instructor positions, and informal as volunteer instructors, training managers, mentors, etc.?
  • What do digital curation educators need in a professional community, and how could the BitCurator Consortium evolve to meet these needs?

These discussions and activities initiate the BitCuratorEdu project’s community-building goals. BitCuratorEdu is a three-year IMLS-funded research and community-building project that seeks to broaden the adoption of digital curation education. The project is a partnership between the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Educopia Institute, along with the Council of State Archivists (CoSA). Additional partners include an Advisory Board consisting of faculty representatives from eight US-based Library and Information Science programs and a Professional Experts Panel consisting of eight practitioners and continuing educators.
