The CT-LASER+ Project, with educational leaders from the U. Maryland, U. Missouri, Kent State U., and Clayton State U., aims to develop an online national collaborative network for integrating computational thinking (CT) into library and archival education and practice. This IMLS-funded project brings together educators, practitioners, and researchers to design pedagogical tools and resources that archival educators can use to introduce graduate students to computational science principles and practices. The CT approach encourages archivists to break down large-scale digital records challenges into manageable components and create solutions that combine archival data and code to create accessible archival records.

Educators involved with the project will present their experiences designing courses, learning objectives, and activities to incorporate computational science principles and practices into graduate archival studies courses including introductory/foundational courses, archival description, digital preservation/curation, and digital humanities. In addition to sharing their stories, the educators will engage with participants to help them brainstorm ways that computational thinking can be adopted by other educators. The workshop also aims to generate a list of requirements and needed resources to successfully integrate computational thinking into the mainstream of archival pedagogy at the course level and the program level.

Will this session be recorded for the AERI2021 Youtube channel? Yes. Presentations can be recorded; other parts of session (discussion/brainstorming in breakout rooms will not be).
