International Curation Education Forum


International Curation Education Forum

Date: Wednesday 29 June, 2011

Location: University College London, The Roberts Building, Torrington Place, London, WC1E 7JE

**Please reserve the date in your calendar**

The aim of this event will be to provide an international meeting place for educators, trainers, students and practitioners of digital curation to: discuss, evaluate, swap knowledge, and potentially improve practice around:

a) effective curricula and course design

b) production of advice and guidance materials (beginner, intermediate and expert)

c) creation and use of textbooks and scholarly material

The principal focus of the day will be on enabling all participants to learn as much as possible about the latest developments in digital curation teaching and training. Presentations will be combined with structured networking, lightning talks and feedback sessions to maximise opportunities for examining a wide range of approaches.

The event is being subsidised and led by JISC in association with: the Digital Curation Centre (DCC); the Institute of Library and Museum Services; the School of Library and Information Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and the Department of Information Studies, University College London.  The Forum will be an ideal opportunity for a number of different groups to congregate including: academics; curation training professionals; digital curators; repository managers; archivists; records managers; data managers; data librarians; publishers; commercial service providers; and students. It should be of interest to anyone who attended the DigCCurr conferences at UNC Chapel Hill (2007 & 2009) and will also build on the discussions of the IDEA (International Digital Curation Education Action) Group. The programme is being put together by an international advisory group and will be announced shortly.

The venue for the forum will be the UCL Roberts Building, a recent addition to the UCL Bloomsbury campus and home to the University’s engineering faculty. The venue is in the heart of the Bloomsbury university precinct and is convenient for all the cultural and social delights that Central London has to offer. A registration process is being setup and will be announced as soon as possible along with the draft programme.  A small fee will be payable for attendance at the event in order to offset some of the costs.

Student - £25

University/ public sector staff - £45

Commercial delegates - £65 (sponsorship queries most welcome)
