Learn collections care skills, even at a distance.
Why Learn with Us Online?
Online learning is more accessible and equitable. Our mission to empower participants and build preservation knowledge and skills can only be realized if those who need training can access it. Our lives have become more “virtual” as a result of the pandemic and we anticipate this pivot will not disappear. Online learning offers greater flexibility, convenience, and is more cost-effective than in-person learning.
Our community of practice is built around relationships. We are committed to building these social and professional networks regardless of whether learning takes place online or on our campus. Our online classes offer the live-interaction of a traditional class and opportunities to engage with other participants.
Our community of practice is built around hands-on, experiential learning. Practice kits and at-home labs will continue this tradition, but at your own pace. Course fees include all materials, so there is no additional cost to you.
Online courses meet live over a series of consecutive weeks. Meeting times will be determined based on participant time zones. Participants access course materials and discussion forums through a web-based learning management system. Social hours will be scheduled to provide opportunities to get to know one another outside the virtual classroom. Zoom web conferencing is used for class meetings. Participants are expected to use a webcam and microphone during class. We do not recommend participation using mobile devices.
