    Save the Date! SAA 2015 — Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Unconference & Workshops

    Would you like to learn more about teaching with primary sources? Do you want to share your primary source teaching experiences with others in an open, informal setting? Is there an aspect of teaching with primary sources you wish you knew more about but were afraid to ask?

    The Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) subcommittee of the Reference, Access and Outreach (RAO) Section of the Society of American Archivists is organizing a day-long (9:30 am – 4 pm) unconference and workshop series dedicated to this topic on August 19.

    Hosted by the Cleveland Public Library, the event will coincide with the annual Society of American Archivists (SAA) conference being held at the nearby Cleveland Convention Center, but will be free and open to anyone who wishes to attend, regardless of affiliation. TPS unconference and workshop participants will not need to register for the SAA conference, nor must they be archivists. Anyone currently teaching with primary sources or aspiring to teach with primary sources — librarians of all stripes, teachers and professors of all educational levels, museum professionals — is invited. Students are welcome. Additionally, a full day’s attendance is not required; participants may arrive and leave at their leisure and according to their interests.

    While the event is still in its planning stages, preliminary workshop topics include strengthening teaching pedagogy, integrating archives into existing courses or educational programming, the relationship between teaching with primary sources and the Association for College and Research Library’s (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy, art-related instruction, and assessment. Discussion topics for the unconference include building relationships between archives, schools, and educators; setting teaching policies and workflows, addressing the Common Core standards, and teaching with digital primary source content. There will be opportunities for spontaneous discussion in keeping with the nature of unconferences.

    Unconferences are guided by their participants, so the agenda will evolve as the TPS subcommittee receives registration information and discovers what people want to learn and teach. Keep up with the latest news and register for the event by visiting the TPS Workshops and Unconference website at bitly.com/SAA15TPS

    The TPS subcommittee encourages you to connect with others and discuss your ideas on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #saa15teach
