Teaching & Research w/ Digital Collections (Part 3): Lessons and Learning Activity Design. Content to consider when drafting

February 2, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Within the scholarship of teaching and learning, it has been proven time and again that “Assembling and curating specimen collections is a valuable educational exercise that integrates subject-specific skills such as field collection, curation, identification, organization, and interpretation of relationships.” (Lucky et. al 2019) Digital collections increasingly avail students and scholars of primary source research materials that were only accessible previously by exclusive arrangement in person, if at all. Rare and unique items, such as manuscript documents, cultural artifacts, and historical print ephemera, still present methodological challenges for intensive engagement, even when they are readily and openly accessed. In this third workshop of the series, the focus will shift to strategies for the design, development, and implementation of curriculum-based learning activities that engage collections of IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) content.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn various strategies for learning activity design using curated collections of items
  • Create usable sample learning activities in Bruin Learn, using IIIF-based collections content and embedded IIIF-compatible tools

All levels are welcome. This workshop series is a collaboration between the UCLA Digital Library Program and the Office of Advanced Research Computing. Additional leadership provided by UCLA faculty who have been participating in the LMS Design Lab.
