Situated within the shifting landscape of graduate education, the development and delivery of online education has continued to change, grow, and perhaps started to stabilize. Graduate programs that provide online archival education in various forms (including asynchronous, hybrid, synchronous, and more) share the common goal of educating and shaping new archival professionals and archival scholarship with location-based offline programs. Yet graduate educators teaching online have unique needs and challenges that merit the development of pedagogical plans and inclusive conversations about meeting the needs of archival students that are not geographically and synchronously congregated in a physical classroom. Further, online programs often require consideration of different methods and models for scaffolding, setting up necessary conversations, and building networks that will serve students as they move into the profession.

This proposal for a workshop on online archival pedagogy, to be held during AERI 2021, sets out two goals: 1) to convene archival educators interested in advancing scholarship related to online archival pedagogy and its challenges/opportunity; 2) to identify and set out an agenda for archival education that identifies areas of need and is inclusive, responsive, and reflective of the gaps in discussing how to address the needs of the online classroom for the future of the archival profession.

Workshop schedule/agenda:

  • Introductions and sharing of online teaching experiences/interests (15 minutes)
  • Discussion of audiences for online education (similarities and differences to in-person audiences; particular needs of online students; assessment of online student learning and engagement) (15 minutes)
  • Identification and exploration of opportunities and challenges specific to archival studies online programs (30 minutes)
  • Initial sketch of research agenda for online archival pedagogy (30 minutes)

Will this session be recorded for the AERI 2021 YouTube channel? Yes, we are willing to record/ share this on the closed AERI channel, with notification to participants at the start that it will be recorded and shared.
