As we're all planning for the upcoming semester and exploring creative ways to reach virtually, the organizers of the Primary Source Immersion Program wanted to offer a series of workshops the last week of July to highlight digitized collections and possibilities for incorporating special collections materials and virtual visits, conversations, and activities into your fall courses. These workshops also offer a space to come together to discuss challenges and techniques as a community.  We have three workshops from different repositories, as well as a worksop on assignment design in the virtual realm.  We also have a tentative workshop from Adam Matthew on the databases they offer.  Here is the current schedule:

  • Monday, July 27: Lilly Workshop, 11:00am
  • Tuesday, July 28: IU Archives Workshop, 11:00am
  • Wednesday, July 29: Assignment Design Workshop, 2:00pm
  • Tentative Thursday, July 30: Adam Matthew Workshop, 11:00am
  • Friday, July 31: Moving Image Archive Workshop, 11:00am

A LibGuide of digitized materials from various repositories across campus is being developed to aid in planning for the fall. 

If you are interested in attending any of the workshops listed above, please fill out this Google form by Friday, July 24th.  Zoom links and passwords will be sent out to those who fill out the Google form a day before the workshop date.

 

The Primary Source Immersion Program is a three-day summer workshop designed to help instructors integrate primary sources into a new course or a redesigned course, with the ultimate goal of fostering students' information literacy skills. Working in collaboration with the Libraries’ Department of Teaching & Learning and partner collections across campus, recipients receive a grant to facilitate the incorporation of primary sources into their classroom. All full-time teaching faculty, lecturers, and associate instructors from all disciplines are eligible to apply.  Note: for 2020 the in-person program will not move forward as planned. If you are interested in participating in an online, non-grant funded version of this program, please contact Dina Kellams (dmkellam @ indiana . edu), Director of University Archives.

Interested in integrating primary sources into your pedagogy?

Contact the Department of Teaching & Learning at libinstr@indiana.edu.  We can connect you with archivists and special collections librarians across the campus.  If you've already worked with an archivist or special collections librarian, feel free to contact them directly.  (If you are interested in working with the Lilly Library, please first read about their upcoming renovation.)
