Tutorial 10: New resources for teaching IASA Standards

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has funded the University of Michigan Information for a project to develop, test, and deploy education and training resources for teaching digitization standards (IASA, FADGI, and underlying technical documentation) in classrooms, workshops, and on the job.  Resources will be developed independently for digitizing analog audio, analog videotape, and photographic materials (based on FADGI guidelines). The two target audiences for the new resources are (1) educators who teach university students (upper and lower divisions) and (2) managers of digitization labs and services who need to train student workers or upgrade the skills of existing or new staff.  The educational resources will be developed as highly modularized self-guided courses available free online and partially in print on demand.  The purpose of the half-day workshop is to gather a mix of seasoned experts in analog audio and analog videotape digitization together with prospective users of the educational resources.  Guided by the workshop instructor, participants will review components of IASA-TC 03, TC 04, TC 05, and TC 06 (forthcoming) and brainstorm on the content of modules that could serve as a bridge for students and independent learners between technical standards and informed practice. Participants will also develop recommendations on resources that could support proposals for outsourcing digitization work to third-party vendors and grant-writing activities. The workshop could be viewed as allied with and supporting the work of the IASA Training and Education Committee.
