Archival Literacy Online Course

Background

Archivists invest much of their time and efforts into educating individual users by teaching them on how to conduct research in their fonts and also by going into schools to inform the younger generations on the values and knowledge that lie in archives. In the digital age educational institutions as well as archives have to adapt to new technologies of enhanced learning and are given the chance to exploit these technological developments for resourceful and comprehensive learning opportunities,

Innovation

With the support of the Department of Technology Enhanced Learning at the Cork Institute of Technology, we will develop an online training course on archival literacy oriented towards teachers of secondary schools, to introduce younger generations to the potential of archives and facilitate knowledge transfer in line with the progression of digital technology.
