Works in Progress Webinar -- Partnerships, pedagogy, and primary sources: Strategies for working with faculty to engage students with primary sources

This webinar will be of interest to those who teach with special collections, those who are developing teaching partnerships with faculty, and to archives and special library collections leaders interested in developing or expanding an instructional program.

Presenters

Chloe Gerson, Reference and Instruction Archivist, Robert D. Farber University Archives & Special Collections, Brandeis University
Laura Hibbler, Associate University Librarian for Research and Instruction, Brandeis University

Description

“Trial by fire,” “trial and error,” and “learned by making mistakes” – these are some examples of how Brandeis University faculty described the experience of learning to teach with primary sources. In this webinar, Brandeis Library staff will discuss their findings from an Ithaka S+R study focusing on faculty experiences using primary sources when teaching undergraduate students. The presenters’ in-depth interviews with 15 faculty members from the humanities and social sciences allowed them to develop a set of recommendations for librarians and archivists looking to strengthen their teaching partnerships on campus. While the interviews took place in 2019, before the abrupt shift in higher education of 2020, the presenters will also discuss strategies for engaging students with primary sources in the new teaching environment we are all grappling with.

This webinar will be of interest to those who teach with special collections, those who are developing teaching partnerships with faculty, and to archives and special library collections leaders interested in developing or expanding an instructional program.
