Whether you think of yourself as a teacher, museum educator, librarian, student, archival educator, administrator, or some other calling — or if you don’t have experience but want real-life exposure — this event is a great way to share ideas and learn with like-minded people.
Hey you Archivists: Tell your non-archivist teaching friends!

Currently, the most likely date for the event is Tuesday, August 14, 2018. Please do check back though.
For those of you attending the SAA Conference, we know this is going to conflict with other programs & events, as it has in past years. We’re always trying to strike a balance between these overlaps and making the unconference close enough to the bulk of the conference program so people can get the most out of their time/travel/budget. It’s definitely a compromise all around. Please note that the event is free and as always, you can drop-in/drop-out throughout the day.

This free event is open to everyone interested in using primary source material for teaching, from all institutions and with all levels of experience. While it does fall during the Society of American Archivists annual meeting week, it’s a place where anyone from all backgrounds can get together help each other do better with this sort of beyond-the-textbook teaching.

Questions? Comments? Interested in running a workshop or volunteering day-of?
Want to get involved in the event organizing work? Want to offer up your space as a venue?!? (Yes, you do!)

Tentative date: Most likely, one day in the August 14-16, 2018 range.
(Depends on how things settle out with 2018 SAA Annual Meeting.)
