Please join us for April’s #snaprt Twitter chats. On Wednesday, April 13, we will discuss educator and archivist collaboration/ using archival resources in the classroom. On Monday, April 25, we hold a joint chat with Librarian Wardrobe focusing on workplace attire. Our chats take place from 8-9 PM Eastern Time.
We are also collecting responses for two surveys: Input for the SAA 2016 Career Center (closing April 15) and Reviewing past #snaprt chats (closing April 29)! As one of the target audiences for the Career Center, our input will help shape the SAA Career Development Subcommittee’s plans. The SNAP Social Media Team would also really value responses for the second survey since it will help us find ways to increase the impact of #snaprt Twitter chats.
For the educators and archives chat, the SNAP Roundtable Twitter account (@SNAP_Roundtable) will pose the following questions:
- As a student, were you exposed to an archive and/or taught archival literacy within the classroom?
- How do you connect with educators to incorporate archives in the classroom?
- What challenges do you face when putting together presentations for classes?
- Has collaborating with educators and students changed the way you look at collections?
- What is your favorite thing about incorporating archives and the classroom?
We welcome everyone to join or keep up with our chat using the #snaprt hashtag on Twitter. Questions or suggestions about our upcoming chats may be sent to @SNAP_Roundtable on Twitter, through the anonymous form on the SNAP RT chat webpage, or by emailing the SNAP RT Junior Social Media Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see the SNAP RT chat webpage for more information about #snaprt Twitter chats.
