SESSION 207 - Collaborations with Impact: Working Together on Archives-based Instruction

Archivists and faculty/instructors discuss collaborations that have used primary sources to guide their curriculum development.  Examples of collaborative projects include an interdisciplinary writing course, a pre-college course for high school students, and creation of TeachArchives.org.  Working together to co-create assignments, syllabi, and new initiatives offers archivists and instructors the opportunity to provide students with a much richer experience and to raise awareness and appreciation for special collections.
