Collections-Based Online Learning in the Digital Archive


THURSDAY, March 25, 2021
9:30-11:30 AM

In this webinar about teaching and learning in the digital archive, Amy Barlow will discuss teaching an online first-year seminar that uses collections-based learning as an approach for developing coursework and learning outcomes. The program will describe how students in the course developed academic skills and acquired subject knowledge through the sustained study of a digitized manuscript from the Papers of Dr. Carl Russell Gross (1888-1971), a physician and chronicler of Rhode Island’s Black professional community during the first half of the twentieth century. Participants will gain theoretical and practical knowledge of collections-based learning with digital materials, which may be adapted to various instructional settings both online and face-to-face.
