Framing the Digital Curation Curriculum:
A DigCurV Workshop
10th December 2012
On the periphery of the Cultural Heritage on line conference, Trusted Digital Repositories and Trusted Professionals, the DigCurV (Digital Curation Vocational Education Europe) network presents this FREE event, open to professionals, practitioners and executives working in the field of digital curation.
DigCurV is funded by the European Commission’s Leonardo da Vinci programme to establish a curriculum framework for vocational training in digital curation.
The project brings together a network of partners to address the availability of vocational training for digital curators in the library, archive, museum and cultural heritage sectors needed to develop new skills that are essential for the long-term management of digital collections.
- How do we self-evaluate our skills and knowledge as digital curators to keep current in our field?
- What training is required for those working in digital curation at the Practitioner, Manager and Executive levels?
- What challenges are there in designing digital curation training?
The DigCurV network presents this 1-day workshop as part of their ongoing work to design a Curriculum Framework in digital curation. Working within three key areas, we discuss the design of the curriculum from the perspective of the Executive, the Practitioner and the Manager.
The Workshop will feature high profile expert guest speakers from the field of digital curation, as well as the opportunity to provide feedback on the development of the Curriculum Framework.
Join us for this workshop, your input would be invaluable. Spaces, however, are limited so be sure to book your place soon.
