Chat with Us this Wednesday, December 16th

Please join SAA’s Students and New Archives Professionals Roundtable for our last  #snaprt Twitter chat of 2015! We will be discussing archival education on Wednesday, December 16, at 8 PM ET. This will be a great opportunity to share and gain insight about archival education experiences, education programs, and certification.

Current students, recent graduates, and new and experienced archivists are all encouraged to join the chat. We will discuss topics such as:

  • What types of degrees are offered for those interested in becoming archivists? What are the advantages of the different types of degrees or particular degree programs?
  • What classes in your program did you find most useful and why?
  • What classes or pedagogical practices do you wish were more common in archival education programs?
  • What is the role of archival education programs and the archives community in supporting practicum experiences for students?
  • What are the benefits and drawbacks of professional archival certification?

We welcome everyone to join or keep up with our chat using the #snaprt hashtag on Twitter.
