Sponsored by Voyager Press Rare Books and Manuscripts

In this workshop participants will engage with the “Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy” to create meaningful learning experiences based on primary source materials. The workshop will offer hands-on experience with pedagogical concepts such as backwards design, active learning, and formative assessment. Throughout the day, participants will build a toolkit of practical teaching tools grounded in the “Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy” with a focus on challenging aspects of primary source literacy, including teaching unique and unfamiliar formats, creator intent and bias, and gaps and absences in materials and collections. Participants will engage in collaborative learning techniques and reflection, culminating in an opportunity to collaboratively develop an instruction session based on collections at participants’ home institutions. The workshop is aimed at those in academic, public, and special institutions with some teaching experience, but it is not an advanced workshop.

Workshop fee (6/18/2019, 9:00am-4:00pm):  $180
