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

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

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.

I have been team-teaching with archivists for almost twenty years, teaching students ranging from first-year undergrads to Ph.D.s in literature, history, American Studies and theory. Classes out of archives and special collections are some of the best experiences I've had--students become deeply engaged in our work, and they tell us that the courses resonate with them long after graduation.
