Feedback form is now closed.
Learn how to engage disciplines outside the humanities in primary source literacy. The archivist will present two case studies focused on teaching archives to science and medicine students, then discuss how to adapt the active learning methods used for other topics.

The archivist guided a healthcare class in examining relevant sources from the 1918 flu pandemic; students distilled learning into social media posts. The History of Science and Medicine students produced podcasts analyzing primary sources, with the archivist as both technical guide and information literacy coach.
