The RMS steering committee spent a good portion of last year investigating various RIM educational opportunities. You can view our findings here.
Now we’d like to have a conversation with our community to find out what topics and levels of depth are needed to support you in your work and your professional development. Join us this Friday (December 11) at 2pm ET for a Zoom chat. You are not required to have a camera available, though you are certainly welcome to use one. Most important will be having access to speakers and a microphone so you can participate in the conversation (although if you at least have a keyboard, you could participate via chat rather than orally). You can register for the session and receive the Zoom login information by registering here: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIkfu6vqjktGNGI20qf9UUQgpXsdS7Ms_wW
If we were to design a track program through SAA Education, here are some already existing courses that could be included:
• Records Management Introduction
• Basics of Managing Digital Records
• Change Management: How Do You Tackle It?
• Records Management for Archivists
• Train the Trainer: Building a Successful Continuing Education Course
• Designing and Presenting Effective Online Learning
• Email Archiving: Strategies, Tools, Techniques
What else needs to be added? Is there sufficient interest in a certificate program? Are there folks who’d be interested in teaching particular topics?
Bring your questions and suggestions to this session. If you need any further information, please feel free to reach out to the steering committee leadership at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your joining us on Friday.
