Institute of Education
23-29, Emerald Street. London. WC1N 3QS.
University Challenges will bring together archivists and academics from
across the country for a day of case studies, workshops and discussions.
Effective collaborations between HE institutions and archives will unlock
fabulous resources for archive educators, HE tutors and, most importantly,
their students. There will be opportunities to hear the latest approaches
to working with archives in HE settings plus opportunities to explore
practical and exciting ways forward, including working on a best practice
toolkit for archivists and tutors working in the sector.
The Archives for Education and Learning Group (AfELG) of the Society of
Archivists have been meeting with a group of HE archivists for some time
to discuss best practice for the promotion and use of archives within
higher education. University Challenges marks the first public forum based
on this work.
Speakers will include:
Dr Mike Winstanley, Senior Lecturer in History at Lancaster University,
currently undertaking an HEFCE National Teaching Fellowship during which
he is exploring the use of archival resources for local history.
Ms Nicky Sugar, Head of Archives and Records Management, Royal Holloway,
University of London. Nicky has worked extensively with undergraduate and
postgraduate students at RHUL and other institutions on a range of
projects involving archive collections.
Ms Victoria Killick, Archivist at the School of Hygiene and Tropical
Medicine, University of London. Victoria will discuss her experience of
making archives accessible.
Dr Nick Barratt, reader adviser at The National Archives and the designer
of the ARTS (Archival Research, Techniques and Skills) Scheme. Dr Barratt
has also done extensive work on the BBC House Histories programmes.
